Flume Releases Surprise ‘Things Don’t Always …’ LP: Listen

In an unexpected Wednesday (2.08) move, Flume shared Things Don’t Always Go The Way You Plan – a compilation of previously unreleased tracks he recorded between 2012 to 2021. 

Posting an image of the LP art along with .WAV files, folders and JPEGs, the superstar Australian deejay/producer (born Harley Streten,) teased the drop in a social media post, adding that he was inspired to compile the repertoire after seeing the fanfare another previously-unreleased demo, “Slugger 1.4 [2014 Export.WAV],” received last fall.

“It’s been ten years since my first record came out, since then I’ve wrote a lot a lot music and not all of it has seen the light of day,” wrote Flume. “After seeing the reaction to Slugger 1.4 and how much love it got, I figured it would be fun to release more of these forgotten ideas I from my old laptops. The whole process has been quite cathartic.”

Canvassing almost a decade-worth of work, the 10-track release includes three collaborative pieces “Counting Sheep (V2) [2018 Export Wav]” with hip-hop group Injury Reserve, “Rhinestone 1.7.2 [2018 Export Wav]” with singer Isabella Manfredi, and “One Step Closer 1.4 [2021 Export Wav]” with Animal Collective’s Panda Bear.

In 2022, Flume released Palaces, his third full length that featured artists Damon Albarn, Emma Louise, Laurel, and Caroline Polachek.
