Track Of The Day: The Avalanches - 'Frankie Sinatra'

Well, it's about time. Australian cut-and-paste pioneers The Avalanches have kept us waiting 16 long years for a follow-up to their much-loved 2000 debut album 'Since I Left You', and now the wait for new material is finally over. Titled 'Wildflower', the second album will be released on July 8 via XL Recordings. "What kept us going during the making this record was a belief in the day-to-day experience of music as a life force – as life energy," The Avalanches' Robbie Chater said, "hearing a certain song on a certain morning can change your day; it can make the world look different, changing the way you perceive light refracting through the atmosphere for the rest of the afternoon. Literally changing the colour and feeling-tone of your world."

The catchy lead single 'Frankie Sinatra' features vocals from Danny Brown and MF Doom, as well as a sample from 'My Favorite Things' from Rodgers and Hammerstein's The Sound Of Music. The album will also feature appearances from Father John Misty, Toro y Moi, Mercury Rev's Jonathan Donahue, Jennifer Herrema of Royal Trux, Camp Lo, Biz Markie and frequent Nick Cave collaborator Warren Ellis.
