Flume has had a productive 2016, methodically creating anticipation for his sophomore LP, Skin. The Australian superstar has already released multiple singles from the album, including “Wall Fuck” and “Never Be Like You feat. Kai” — the latter of which received the remix treatment from Disclosure and Wave Racer, as well as a music video. Now Flume returns to the friendly confines of Annie Mac’s BBC Radio 1 show to debut yet another track from the LP, “Say It feat. Tove Lo.”
The Swedish singer’s saccharine vocals and staccato delivery lead the way as Flume’s production buzzes and bubbles underneath, slowly building tension as the track moves towards the drop. Flume matches the looseness of Tove Lo’s delivery, meandering into a dreamy section that introduces drums to add more forward momentum. The track transitions back into a verse, before another drop and slinky, wobbly synthesizer solo take over. A final drop, once again matching the swaying, relaxed vocals from Lo, plays the track out.
Flume has also revealed Skin’s tracklist — which reveals numerous collaborations, notably Beck — as well as the album’s release date, May 27.
