The Avalanches have announced their upcoming album We Will Always Love You, following the release of tracks “Wherever You Go” and “Reflecting Light” from two months ago. The project will mark the duo’s first LP to release in four years.
Taking to Instagram, the duo posted a hazy image of Ann Druyan, Creative Director of the Voyager Golden Record Project, as the cover art to their new album. Designed by the duo’s friend Jonathan Zawada, the artwork was created by running Druyan’s portrait through a spectrograph for a textured lo-fi glow. The post’s caption also mentions that the theme of the album, “everlasting love as an undying vibration,” was inspired by Druyan’s “cosmic love story.”
So far, no official release dates have been revealed but the duo has promised to unveil more details “soon.”

We're very happy to share with you the cover for our new album, "We Will Always Love You". Designed by our dear friend Jonathan Zawada, the sleeve features Ann Druyan, (Creative Director of the Voyager Golden Record Project) , who’s cosmic love story inspired this music. In keeping with the album's theme of everlasting love as an undying vibration, Ann's image was run through a spectograph, turned into sound, and back again. The image remains hidden, deep within in the grooves of the music, for you to discover if you wish. An exploration of the vibrational relationship between light, sound and spirit, "We Will Always Love You" will be available for pre-order next week, with more details to follow soon.
