Well, rumors of a whole new Flume mixtape have come and gone, but we still get new Flume music today and that’s no reason to be upset. “Let You Know” with London Grammar is out now, and fits in more with his post-mixtape single “Friends” than the glitchy, sound design-heavy work on Hi This Is Flume.
Of course, that isn’t to say that he doesn’t flex a bit. His usual melodic genius is in full display in the “chorus” and his crisp drums and production are present throughout. It’s a slower track, playing more off the vocals of London Grammar’s Hannah Reid than his own intricacies. Yet, undoubtedly, this is a wonderful new single.
“Hannah and I wrote Let You Know last summer. I was on a writing trip to London, was actually the same trip where I first met slowthai. Had been wanting to make something with Hannah for a long time and this one just came together really naturally in the studio that day!” – Flume
It’s still unclear if there will be another full album/mixtape out this year, but Flume told fans in a Reddit AMA that he would be releasing music much more steadily in 2019. We’re getting our first taste of it here and now.
