Despite taking 16 years to write the follow-up to 2000's 'Since I Left You', The Avalanches have announced that they've already begun working on the follow-up to 2016's 'Wildflower'.
Speaking with Sydney-based radio station FBI Radio, the band’s Robbie Chater admitted they've begun working on new material between tours.
“In the few weeks since we’ve been home from the States, Tony and myself have just been writing,” explained Chater.
“It’s flowing so quickly. I think getting Wildflower out of the way and following up Since I Left You feels like a weight’s been lifted. The [new] music is really light, it’s some of the best stuff we’ve done.
“We’ve got eight songs we’re playing to the label on Monday. Who knows when [they’ll be out]? Next year? It’s definitely soon.”
So it's looking increasingly likely we won't have to wait another 16 years for the band's third studio album.
