Listen to Flume’s stunning collaboration with Beck, ‘Tiny Cities’
The biggest news in dance music this week is Flume’s sophomore LP, Skin.
With a number of the album’s singles already surfaced – including “Say It” with Tove Lo and “Lose It” with Vic Mensa, Flume decided to showcase his highly-anticipated collaboration with the prolific Beck, “Tiny Cities,” two days before the official release of the album — and who else to debut the track than Zane Lowe on Beats 1. In the interview with Zane before the track starts, both artists discuss how the track came together and the convergence of Flume’s deep knowledge of production technology with Beck’s moving songwriting abilities.
The opening verse presents a shimmering indie-electronic arrangement with Beck’s mind-numbing vocals guiding the track atop before Flume unleashes a time-stopping future bass surge of a space-aged synths and spry drum strikes. Listen to the interview and single below.
Skin is set for release this Friday, May 27.
