“Never Be Like You” is the first track unveiled from Flume’s highly anticipated forthcoming album, Skin, coming later this year on Transgressive Records. The original has been streamed more than 48 million times since release last month, and is the first chart-topping single for the Sydney-based producer. The #1 single, which premiered on BBC Radio 1 as Annie Mac's 'Hottest Record’was subsequently added to the BBC Radio 1 B-List. “Never Be Like You” also reached #1 on Spotify’s Global Viral Chart and #1 on Hype Machine, as well as climbing up the Top 100 Shazam charts.
Following a truly epic performance at the Roundhouse in London earlier this month, Flume has announced a handful of EU and North American dates this spring and summer including Parklife festival, Wildlife festival and Coachella. Tickets are available now at flu.me.
Since the 2012 release of his self-titled debut, Flume continues to receive feverish support from fans and critics alike, becoming one of the first artists to top 200 million Soundcloud plays and reaching more than 366 million streams on Spotify. Flume is 24-year-old Australian producer Harley Streten. After releasing his debut in Australia in November 2012 on Future Classic, Flume experienced wildfire success winning 2013’s Triple J Award for Australian Album of the Year and four ARIA Awards for Producer of the Year, Best Male, Breakthrough Artist and Best Dance Release. He has since gone on to tour extensively worldwide including headlining Paris’ Rock En Seine for over 40,000 fans and sold-out, multi-night runs in New York, Los Angeles, London and Berlin.
