It was only yesterday we were getting excited by the Danny Brown guest spot on the latest Rustie single, and now news of a collaboration with The Avalanches has surfaced after DB chatted to triple j whilst in town for Splendour In The Grass.
“I did one song with them a while ago and it was cool. They felt like it was okay and I felt like it was okay. But then we actually got in the studio and made a record and I swear the record we made is incredible. ‘Frank Sinatra’ was the first one we did. That was cool but the one we did after that… I swear, if we put that out, it’ll change the world. I heard it that first night and that was the only time I heard it. I wanna hear it again! But I know for a fact I put my foot into that song. When I work on something that hard I really like to receive the benefits from it so I can’t wait until The Avalanches release their next project!”
As if we weren’t already intrigued as to what the follow-up to the modern classic Since I Left You will sound like, now we’re bloody drooling.
I mean “I swear, if we put that out, it’ll change the world”?!?!?! either Danny’s back on the cough syrup or the album is going to meet our lofty expectations after all, here’s hoping it’s the latter.
Look, we won’t be holding our breath (we tried that over a decade ago and it didn’t end well) BUT seriously Robbie & co. if by some chance you’re reading this HURRY UP AND RELEASE THE DAMN THING ALREADY please?
Obviously there’s no new audio to be had so instead we’ll leave you with one of THE greatest mixtapes of all-time wherein the boys mixed elements of Since I Left You with classic joints & jams from the likes of The Beatles, De La Soul, Bob Dylan, Cyndi Lauper, Men at Work, Jurassic 5 and many many more.
