"Rushing Back" is a song by Australian electronic musician Flume, featuring Australian singer songwriter Vera Blue. It was released as a single on 27 September 2019, by Australian music label Future Classic. The track was first premiered on radio Triple J on 26 September 2019 after being performed live for the first time during Flume's Lollapalooza Festival set last in August.
Speaking on Triple J, Flume said it was Vera's 'vocal gymnastics' that really caught his attention, particularly on her 2015 single "Hold". Flume said "I heard her song 'Hold' and I was like, this is insane. Her voice, the melody... As soon as I heard that I was like, we have to find this person and work with her."
Vera Blue said "Harley (aka Flume) threw me a bunch of ideas and I was riffing over the songs, just humming melodies that came to my head based on how the song made me feel. There were a couple of ideas I resonated with but I really fell in love with this one as soon as I heard the first few chords, which eventually blossomed into 'Rushing Back'."
Debbie Carr from Triple J said "'Rushing Back' feels like a natural evolution for the Sydney producer, taking the jagged, futuristic production we first heard from him back on Skin and pushing it into a new melodic earworm territory."
