Danny Brown has detailed his two collaborations with acclaimed Australian production crew The Avalanches. Brown casually described the first track, Frank Sinatra, as “okay” and “cool,” but gushed about the untitled latter, telling Triple J’s Richard Kingsmill that “it’ll change the world.”
“The Avalanches, they’re crazy, man,” said Brown, who was in the country for an exclusive set at Splendour In The Grass 2014. “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,” the rapper gushed. “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!” And according to a report earlier this month, that release may not be as far away as fans think.
During a recent tour of Melbourne’s Sing Sing Studios, taking place as part of the annual Leaps & Bounds Music Festival, a studio guide reportedly told The Music that the band have been mixing their follow-up to 2000’s Since I Left You in the Melbourne studio for “three or four months now.”
