The Avalanches have announced a new album.

Titled ‘We Will Always Love You’, it follows on from the duo’s last album, 2016’s ‘Wildflower’, which was their first in 16 years. A release date has not yet been revealed for the new album, but they have shared the Jonathan Zawada–designed cover art, which you can find below. 

They also offered details on the Ann Druyan-produced sleeve, who is Creative Director of the Voyager Golden Record Project. The group stated that Druyan’s “cosmic love story inspired this music.”

In a statement, the pair said: “In keeping with the album’s theme of everlasting love as an undying vibration, Ann’s image was run through a spectograph, turned into sound, and back again. The image remains hidden, deep within in the grooves of the music, for you to discover if you wish.

“An exploration of the vibrational relationship between light, sound and spirit, ‘We Will Always Love You’ will be available for pre-order next week, with more details to follow soon.”

Earlier this month, The Avalanches teamed up with Tony Hawk to release a rare X-ray vinyl.

They also shared new tracks with Jamie xx, Neneh Cherry and Blood Orange earlier this year.
