Preview The Avalanches’ “Get Happy” Cover For King Kong Musical
It’s been 13 years since Australian DJ crew the Avalanches left us with their beloved album Since I Left You, and they don’t seem any closer to dropping a follow-up. But there is some new Avalanches music coming, and it’ll arrive in a weird an unexpected form. Along with Justice and Massive Attack, the Avalanches have contributed music to a stage-musical adaptation of King Kong, which could be either amazing or laughably awful. The Avalanches have given the musical a version of “Get Happy,” an old standard most famously sung by Judy Garland, and you can hear a quick snippet of it at the 1:58 mark of the video below. Warning: It sounds nothing like Since I Left You.

The King Kong musical opens next month at Melbourne’s Regent Theatre.
