The Avalanches – “If I Was A Folkstar” (Feat. Toro Y Moi)

The Avalanches are finally following up their 2000 opus Since I Left You next month with Wildflower, their long-awaited sophomore LP. We’ve already heard the Danny Brown- and MF Doom-featuring lead single “Frankie Sinatra” and a live version of “Subways” and had a brief opportunity to preview all of the album’s tracks, and now another of those tracks has emerged online. “If I Was A Folkstar” is a summery collaboration with Toro Y Moi, whose breezy vocals pop in about halfway through. The song samples the radio opening bit from Queens Of The Stone Age’s Songs For The Deaf track “You Think I Ain’t Worth a Dollar, But I Feel Like a Millionaire.” Hear it around the 5:17 mark here.

Wildflower is out 7/8 via Astralwerks/Modular/XL. Pre-order it here.
