The Avalanches are back with two brand new songs from their forthcoming album with “Wherever You Go” and “Reflecting Light,” which follow-up the previously released “Running Red Lights” and “We Will Always Love You.”

“Wherever You Go” is a moody and atmospheric tune that features Jamie xx, Neneh Cherry & CLYPSO. It starts out chill but gradually expands into something more colorful and dance-friendly. It includes a sample from The Voyager Golden Record, a gold-plated copper disk launched into space by Voyager 1 and 2 in 1977.

Then there’s “Reflecting Light” which features a sample from Vashti Bunyan’s 1970 track “Glow Worms” and features vocals from Sananda Maitreya. It’s a soulful operatic offering with a retro sound that is given a modern reworking that has The Avalanches stamp all over it.
