Today, The Avalanches dropped the seventh single and music video for Interstellar Love.
The track features the vocals of Leon Bridges and the sampling from The Alan Parsons Project’s iconic song ‘Eye In The Sky’.
Kind of reminds me of Daft Punk’s Digital Love.
One cool blasting into the galaxy song!
We Will Always Love You will come out on December 11, 2020 via Astralwerks.
About the song:
The Avalanches’ Robbie Chater says, “Leon is an incredible singer, with just the most beautiful voice. He’s from Texas but we both happened to be in L.A. at the same time, which was lucky as he was on my all-time wish list. When we were in the studio, I told him the story about Ann Druyan and Carl Sagan and how her love-struck brain waves were sent out into space on the Voyager’s Golden Record. And this song came out of that.”
Uplifting and energetic, the soaring soundwaves of “Interstellar Love” also feature a typically audacious sampling from The Alan Parsons Project’s iconic “Eye In The Sky.”
Mark Holland, head of A&R at EMI Music, recalls, “When I first heard the Alan Parsons sample in the original demo, all I could do was shake my head. This sample will be impossible to clear, the paperwork will be endless, and the cost prohibitive. But…I love the band and their message, I love Leon, and so…we decided to try. In the end, Alan Parsons Project were very good about it.”
