Listen: Flume Shares 10 Years of Unreleased Songs In New Album
In addition to the new album, "Things Don’t Always Go The Way You Plan," Flume will take over the Kia Forum for a special show in May.
In honor of the 10th anniversary of his breakthrough debut album, Flume dusted off unreleased music from the last decade of his career.
He's now dropped Things Don’t Always Go The Way You Plan, a new compilation of songs that didn't make it onto his last three albums: Flume, Skin and Palaces. Comprising 10 tracks dating as far back as 2012, the new album offers fans a rare opportunity to explore what went into the creation of those three records, each of which contain a bevy of generational Flume anthems.
Seven of its 10 tracks are solo songs, and Injury Reserve, Isabella Manfredi and Panda Bear lend their talents to the remaining three. Fans of the more organic sound featured on Flume's latest will enjoy the lush soundscapes of "beat 58 1.1 (2020 Export Wav)," "One Step Closer 1.4 [2021 Export Wav]" and "Nice 2 Know U 1.5.3 [2020 Export Wav]." Meanwhile, "Why 1.3 [2012 Export Wav]" and "Dream 1.2.2 [2016 Export Wav]" serve to satiate fans looking for the sounds that filled the gap between Flume's self-titled debut and his Grammy-winning sophomore album, Skin.
While Things Don’t Always Go The Way You Plan isn't exactly the collection of radio-friendly hits which many of Flume's more casual fans will play on repeat, those enamored with his in-a-league-of-its-own production abilities will feel right at home.
Alongside the new album, the pioneering artist announced a special anniversary event, "10 Years of Flume." Taking over the Kia Forum in Inglewood, California on Friday, May 5th, Flume will will play out the many hits that helped future bass become the genre it is today. He'll be joined by Chet Faker, KUČKA and unannounced special guests.
Tickets to "10 Years of Flume" go on sale Monday, February 13th at 10am PT. You can register for the pre-sale here.
