Australian group The Avalanches released their third album, We Will Always Love You, at the end of 2020, twenty years after their debut. The record takes listeners on a cosmic journey inspired by the Golden Voyager Record, a compilation of sounds, music and greetings from around our world that was sent into space in the late '70s. The album also features guest appearances from MGMT, Blood Orange, Leon Bridges, Tricky, and Sampa The Great. 

Robbie Chater and Tony DiBlasi of The Avalanches discuss sampling, collaborating with different artists, and the love story behind the Golden Voyager Record involving its creators, Carl Sagan, and Ann Druyan.
