Australian artist/producer Flume debuts a new track, “Never Be Like You” featuring Kai, today—the first single from his highly-anticipated Skin, set for release later this year on Mom + Pop. Listen via SoundCloud below.
“Never Be Like You” premiered earlier today, the track is a collaborative effort with vocalist Kai, who has been featured on tracks by Diplo, Jack Ü and Childish Gambino.
“Kai and I were sending ideas back and forth online, then met up in NYC and went into the studio,” Flume says of making the track. “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.”
“The song comes from an extremely personal place,” notes Kai. “It’s about a moment in my own life when everything was going really well and my inner saboteur tried to do what she does best. At the end of the day we are all human and flawed and I felt like I needed to be as real and as candid as possible. I am absolutely in love with this song.” Flume recently shared a teaser for Skin featuring snippets of many of the album’s tracks. Release details are forthcoming.
Flume will play select dates worldwide this spring and summer, coming Stateside for Coachella in April. Further shows will be announced soon, please see below for full details.
Flume is 24-year-old Australian producer Harley Streten. He released his debut album in Australia in November 2012 on Future Classic.
