After a significant break from releasing music before last year, Flume is planning to follow-up his 2019 mixtape Hi This Is Flume with another record in 2020.
The news follows the release of his first new music for 2020 with ‘The Difference’ featuring US singer-songwriter, producer and graphic designer Toro y Moi.
Flume revealed the news about a forthcoming body of work in an interview with Apple Music’s Zane Lowe.
“Yeah, we’ll put out a record this year,” Flume confirmed. I mean, I’m just working away.
“I’m trying to do, like, a beat a day or two ideas a day. I kind of got the blinders on, head down. And yeah, so hopefully put a record out this year.”
Meanwhile, the outbreak of COVID-19 has seen Flume put the call out among his fellow musicians to collaborate remotely.
‘Who wants to corona collab? #cybersession #coronacollab #pandemicproducers #notouchy #quarantine #2020baby’ he posted to Instagram.

Most significantly, Charli XCX responded “So bored”, and Flume hit back with “i’ll send u the files”, teasing what could be one of the biggest collabs of the year if it actually happens!
