The Avalanches have announced the release of a deluxe edition of their groundbreaking debut album, Since I Left You, to commemorate its 20th Anniversary. The release will include a number bonus tracks, including fresh mixes from such artists as MF Doom, Black Dice, Leon Vynehall, Sinkane and Carl Craig.
Released in Australia in 2000, Since I Left You was named one of the year’s best albums by critics around the world and later placed in the Top 10 of Pitchfork’s Top 200 Albums of the 2000s and in the Top 20 of Rolling Stone’s Greatest EDM Albums of All Time.
The release and subsequent touring in support of Since I Left You was followed by a 16-year radio silence, which was broken with the release of TheAvalanches’ sophomore album, Wildflower, which debuted at No. 1 on Billboard’s Vinyl Albums chart and atop the Australian Albums chart in 2016.
Since I Left You 20th Anniversary Edition is out June 4.
