Wildflower, The Avalanches' highly-anticipated second album, just dropped a week early for streaming on Apple Music. The hour-long, 22-track album was previously set to drop July 8 on Astralwerks. It has been 16 years since the group released Since I Left You, their critically-acclaimed debut.

Wildflower is a sonically-dense record featuring the group's signature throwback soul samples and unique field recordings. Unlike their debut, Wildflower includes a number of guest appearances from musicians including Danny Brown, MF DOOM, Toro y Moi, Jennifer Herrema of Royal Trux, Biz Markie, and Father John Misty. Stream Wildflower below.

Watch the video for "Frankie Sinatra," their first single from Wildflower, featuring Danny Brown and MF DOOM. In June, we spoke with the now-grown up 12-year-old the group sampled on their new single, "Subways."
