Flume has shared a new single, 'Sirens', featuring guest vocals from Caroline Polachek. Check it out below.
The new track arrives via Transgressive/Future Classic and was co-written and produced by Danny L Harle. It lands in advance of the Grammy-winning artist's forthcoming album, 'Palaces', which is slated for release on 20th May.
The track follows the release of the single 'Say Nothing'. 'Palaces' will feature appearances from the likes of Gorillaz' Damon Albarn, LAUREL, Quiet Bison, and Virgen Maria.
"Caroline and I had known each other for years, but she'd just moved to L.A. and we bumped into each other living down the street," Flume said of 'Sirens'. "We started playing weekly games of Magic The Gathering with A.G. Cook and a few friends. We started doing a session, and Danny L Harle showed me a voice note from Caroline with some very early stages of vocals. I loved it and went back in on it during the pandemic."
"I was living by myself in London, and it was the darkest time in the pandemic," added Polachek of her lyrical contribution to the song. "I was really going through it, feeling so small, unable to control anything in the world, and the lyric 'sirens' was in reference to the constant ambulances I was hearing."
This summer, the second stage of Flume's world tour will hit the UK and Europe, including dates in London, Paris, and Berlin, with appearances also set for festivals including Belgium's Dour and Mad Cool in Madrid. These shows will follow a slew of US performances, including headline sets at Coachella and Governor's Ball.
