Florence + The Machine – New Single

25 Aug

Florence Welch tweeted ‘Hello interworld, I’m out of the studio and into the sunshine! Pop over to my website at 5pm tomorrow for a peek at something very special x’ on the 22nd of August and I couldn’t help but get extremely excited! I loved Lungs, it was a perfect album. For two years I’ve waited for a new album and it’s finally coming.

It was announced via the band’s official website that the new album (title unknown) will be released on November 7th. The band have released the first official single and it is spectacular. Commercially it has done very well, topping the Alternative Chart on iTunes UK and hitting the top 20 on the overall UK Top 40.


A lot of people said to me that her second album would show that she has sold out but if we’re going by the new single What The Water Gave Me then I don’t believe it. It’s phenomenal. It’s everything Florence + The Machine is about. It’s slightly gothic, it’s anthemic it’s just a really great song.

From all the forums and news websites I’ve seen online, it’s doing well. The band have once again collaborated with the mighty Paul Epworth to produce this record and he claims that there isn’t a bad track on the album. I hope he’s right! I will definitely be buying this album the day it comes out and as soon as her tour is announced I’ll have to grab tickets!

    I am in love with Florence and this is an important album. By the way, who is the Warren Haynes fan who commented? If you are out there, buy this album. It makes the Allman Brothers (my dad listens to them – still – even with his younger 3rd wife) seem, well, old!

      I love her too! Her creativity is stunning and I cannot help but play every song too many times. Lungs was a perfect album and I mean that. It was perfect. Someone commented on my Metronomy post who was surprised Haynes didn’t get nominated. I replied expressing that I wasn’t that surprised! I’m not too much of a fan of Warren Haynes and that sort of music (Allman Brothers, Clapton, etc.) They are old, as you put it! I really hope the new album is as good as this single and matches Lungs, but I will definitely be buying it the day it comes out.
