Frank Ocean’s “Moon River” Sampled In New The Avalanches Record

The Avalanches shared their stellar third studio album, ‘We Will Always Love You’ on Friday, December 11th. Arriving at the end of the year, the album marked a grand curtain call for what was a bizarre 2020. (Check out the CTRL review of the album here)


One of the standout tracks is track no. 23, “Born To Lose”. The simplistic and upbeat production finds a sample of Frank Ocean scattered throughout its production. The Australian electronic duo sample Frank’s 2018 cover of “Moon River”.

The words “One, two” can be heard throughout the song, which were used in the opening of Frank’s cover. Check out the song above.
