Flume's never been afraid to indulge in the mysterious. To mark the start of 2022, he's shared a taste of what we can expect from him over the next 365 days, and you can consider us intrigued.
Teaming up once again with visual artist Jonathan Zawada, the 3-minute clip features some ambient, immersive sounds, as well as an all-too-short sample of an unreleased collaboration with Gorillaz lead singer Damon Albarn. Damon can be heard singing at the end, "I thought that beyond the exit/There would be palaces", which Flume has quoted in the description for the video.
It's been a little while since we last heard from Flume, but he's clearly been keeping busy. His 2019 mixtape Hi This Is Flume received a Grammy nomination for Best Dance/Electronic Album, while he dropped The Difference, a collaboration with Toro y Moi, back in mid-2020.
On the other hand, Gorillaz have been active over the last 18 months, releasing Song Machine, Season One: Strange Timez. The album features the likes of ScHoolboy Q, Beck, St. Vincent, Skepta and Elton John, and is one of their most exciting releases to date.
Check out the teaser below. Flume's gearing up for a big year of new music by the sounds of things, and we're excited to see what he releases in 2022 - and fingers crossed we get to hear this Flume x Gorillaz track soon!
