Already we’ve heard a few of its cuts, including “Never Be Like You” and the Vince Staples-aided “Smoke & Retribution”. Now, the Aussie beatsmith has returned with “Say It”, a euphoric collaboration with Tove Lo, the Swedish pop singer behind hit singles “Habits (Stay High)” and “Talking Body”.
As the story goes, Flume was in Los Angeles to see Kanye West perform at Hollywood Bowl. It was during this stateside trip that he heard Tove on the radio and immediately knew he had to have her on the new record. One thing led to another, and later that week, the two artists linked up and pieced together “Say It” in just two days.
