January has only just begun and Flume has already made the shortlist of most hotly anticipated collabs for 2022.
In a short clip simply titled "Flume - 2022," the famed Australian electronic music producer showcases a dreamy ambient track featuring an unmistakable voice: Damon Albarn of Gorillaz.
The visually pleasing graphic opens in a serene tropical landscape. As the camera zooms deeper, the rainforest seemingly sways aside to reveal a color-splashed cockatoo as lush synths and distorted hums resonate throughout. As the camera zooms into the lens of the bird, a psychedelic landscape of geometric shapes fills the scene to the sound of Albarn, who croons, "I thought beyond the exit, there would be palaces," before the clip fades to darkness.
