Flume announces new mixtape as a new song soundtracks Lollapalooza's trailer
The Australian electronic mastermind will release his first music in three years, a mixtape, tomorrow.
It's no secret that ever since the release of his 2016 second album Skin, that we've been begging for more Flume. He's hinted at it in the past, with a 2017-released, 15-track remix package containing a collection of Skin's tracks remixed by names including SG Lewis, Disclosure and Golden Features, and headline sets at Falls Festival - and many more overseas - providing the perfect opportunity to tease and hit at more sounds to come. Today, we're stoked to say that he'll be releasing a new, full-length mixtape - Hi This Is Flume - as early as tomorrow morning, with a release scheduled for 7 AM AEDT (4 AM AWST).
It promises 40-minutes-plus of new Flume, with a visualiser uploaded to his YouTube suggesting that the entire mixtape will be accompanied by a forward-thinking and artistic set of visuals perhaps created by close friend and collaborator Jonathan Zawada, who worked on the cover art for Skin and its singles as well as albums by The Presets and more. We seemingly have the mixtape's official cover art too:

While we wait, however, there's plenty more to Flume-related content to get around. His When Everything Was New documentary last year has finally been released on YouTube after initially being an Apple Music exclusive, and furthermore, in anticipation to their 2019 line-up dropping any day now, US mega-festival Lollapalooza have just released their forthcoming festival teaser, which by the sounds of it, is soundtracked by someone who may possibly be Flume, sharing a snippet of something yet-to-be-released. Watch it and take those glitchy sounds in below while you wait for Hi This Is Flume to arrive tomorrow morning:
