If there’s a single spark for The Avalanches’ new album, We Will Always Love You, it’s the story of the love affair between Ann Druyan and Carl Sagan: “science communicators” whose writings and TV programs brought the ever-deepening mysteries of astronomy and astrophysics to the mass audience. It’s a story that also sparked the imagination of GRAMMY® Award winning singer-songwriter Leon Bridges, who features on the track “Interstellar Love,” which was released today. Listen HERE. Watch the official video, which was directed by Jonathan Zawada, HERE.
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.”
