A New Year's song from outer space

The Divine Chord (2020) New Year's release from the band: The Avalanches, MGMT and Johnny Marr

On December 10, 2020, The Avalanches shared the official video for their new track "The Divine Chord" featuring MGMT and Johnny Marr. "The Divine Chord" was praised by Stereogum for its "psychedelic disco" sound. The composition was released as part of The Avalanches' album "We Will Always Love You," released the same day on the Astralwerks label.

The Rolling Stone gave the song four stars with the following review:

"We Will Always Love You may be the soundtrack we need - one that bridges people, emotions and eras." NME also awarded the album four stars, calling it "a vivid cosmic journey unlike any other and a love letter to the unifying power of music."

Also, the publication Stereogum noted:

"The album, which consists of 25 tracks and lasts 72 minutes, mimics the beautiful, mysterious growth of the night skyline, exploring questions about death, the afterlife and the stars."

The Avalanches celebrated the album's release with a special DJ broadcast on Saturday, Dec. 19. On the rooftop of Melbourne's iconic Curtin House venue, the duo played tunes from their own catalog as well as favorites and deep tracks from their vast and eclectic record collections. The concert was followed by an exclusive screening of Jonathan Zawada's short film "Carrier Waves," a visual extension of "We Will Always Love You," which features music from the album.

The Australian duo recently told The New York Times about "We Will Always Love You" . The article notes that "it all began with a unifying, though characteristically grandiose concept: light, space and Golden Records, two 12-inch phonograph discs that were launched into space aboard Voyager in 1977.

Based on an approach based on samples from their classic albums Since I Left You and Wildflower , but boldly stepping into new territory, We Will Always Love You is their most song-oriented album, made with a host of guest singers and writers that also includes Rivers Cuomo, Denzel Curry, Nene Cherry, Perry Farrell, Karen O, Mick Jones, Sampa the Great, Tricky, Kurt Vile and Blood Orange.
