Flume has delivered on his promise to release a collection of songs he found on a handful of old laptops. The release comes in the form of a project aptly titled Things Don’t Always Go The Way You Plan. There are 10 tracks in total, which were originally created between the years 2012 to 2021.
There are so many rare goodies on this release. Take “Rhinestone,” for instance, which was originally featured in a documentary Flume released in 2019. Each track name includes the year that Flume first exported it. The earliest is “Why,” which was created during his Flume era in 2012 when he released his first full-length album. The most recent is “One Step Closer,” a song that features Panda Bear.
In a post on Instagram, Flume alluded to even more to come:
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. 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.
In celebration of the release, Flume also announced a 10 Years Of Flume concert at the Kia Forum on May 5. More info on that is right here.
