Flume – Say It Featuring Tove Lo + Remixes

Fin Dac

 

Australian electronic musician Flume collaborated with Swedish vocalist Tove Lo last year on the single SAY IT. Amongst hooks of upbeat harmonies, the song finds its structure inside the struggle of an ending relationship between the lustful memories of wanting someone, and the heartbreaking actuality of wanting to let someone go.

Flume told BBC Radio 1’s Annie Mac how the track came together:

I was in L.A. doing some writing and I went to see Kanye at the Hollywood Bowl. On our way back, we stopped off at a bar. I heard a track that she did, I think it was “Habits”—I wasn’t really familiar with her stuff but I really, really liked it. I was like “who is this, I need to figure it out ”, so I Shazam’d it. Basically, my manager hit her up the day after and she happened to be in L.A too and she was down to write. So, all within about two days, we got together and wrote that track. It just happened, it was easy, it was natural.

Tove Lo added:

I was in LA for a few days between tours when Harley reached out to me about writing together. I’ve been a big fan of him for a long time so I pretty much ran over to his studio. He played me some ideas which one of them was the track for “Say It,” and I just started vibing melodies over it and we put together something we loved. It was so relaxed and fun and kind of a new way for me to write. Very excited for people to hear it!

Flume and Tove Lo took us on an intense journey with their original of Say It from Flume’s 2016 sophomore album Skin. The remixes below showcase different ways artists Clean Bandit, Stwo, Anna Lunoe, Illenium, SG Lewis, and MVJESTY interpreted their own emotions from the song.

Flume – Say It feat. Tove Lo (Stwo Remix)

Feeling the song, party done, shadows walking home
Walking with our game on
You are my kind, classic mind, and you look so fine
Mmm, mmm-mmm mmm
Loving the cold, smoke a roll, see your fingers shake
I’m getting through your heart break
Some kinda freak, sing for me, don’t know what I need
Mmm, mmm-mmm, mmm

Don’t doubt me babe
You make me wanna change
Break my bed, to make me wanna stay
I can’t…
Bite me babe
You make me love the pain
Break my bed, to make me wanna stay
I can’t…
