Australia’s leading electronic experimentalist Flume is always full of surprises. The Grammy winner and alt-pop crusader recently delivered on a promise to release a handful of songs he found on several of his old laptops. That release now comes in the form of a ten-track project, aptly titled Things Don’t Always Go The Way You Plan.
Straddling the line between record and mixtape, as has been the theme of recent years, Flume’s newest collection of tracks were originally created between the years 2012 to 2021.
In a post on Instagram, Flume explains how the wild reception of Slugger 1.4 is what inspired the spontaneous new record:
“t’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. 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.”– Flume
In coordination with the release, Flume also announced a 10 Years Of Flume concert at the Kia Forum on May 5. Happy Cinco de Mayo to everyone, indeed! Tickets are available here.
