Flume Drops A Bunch Of Demos In New ‘Things Don’t Always Go The Way You Plan’ Album

Grammy-winning electronic music titan, Flume has released Things Don’t Always Go The Way You Plan, a surprise collection of unheard music from the last decade. Recently returning back to his home of Australia, Flume came across his old laptop/s and dove back into a range of projects over the past decade, ultimately leading to their release today.

Flume revealed that he was inspired to collate the material after seeing the positive reception after dipping his toes into unheard demos with ‘Slugger 1.4 [2014 Export.WAV]’, which was released in November.

“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.” stated Flume via Instagram.

The 10-track release includes three collaborative efforts: one with hip-hop group Injury Reserve, one with Australian singer Isabella Manfredi and one with Animal Collective‘s Panda Bear. 

In addition to the surprise music, Flume will headline The Kia Forum in Los Angeles on May 5 to celebrate the milestone anniversary, with support from Chet Faker and Kučka.
