Flume is back with brand new music – and it hasn’t taken the 24 year old homegrown superstar producer long to rack up the plays.
Though ‘Never Be Like You’, which features a vocal appearance by Canadian songstress Kai, only surfaced online this morning, it’s already been played more than 150,000 times on Soundcloud (link below) and is already flying high in the top 30 on iTunes.
That could have had something to do with Radio 1’s Annie Mac deeming it “the hottest record in the world” overnight Australian time, but it could also have something to with the fact that it’s a cracking piece of electronica.
“Kai and I were sending ideas back and forth online, then met up in NYC and went into the studio,” Flume says of the song. “We laid down some chords and started an idea but weren’t feeling inspired. So we went out into the night for a few hours and when we returned, it all started to come together.”
‘Never Be Like You’ is the first single to be lifted from Flume’s upcoming sophomore album ‘Skin’, due for release shortly.
