Florence + the Machine Release New Track, “How Big, How Blue, How Beautiful”
Credit: Alex LakeFlorence + the Machine is back, and they’ve brought a new song with them. The band has released “How Big, How Blue, How Beautiful,” a sweeping, orchestral track that’s largely instrumental, save for one instance of Machine leader Florence Welch repeating the song’s title in her reliably haunting voice. You can watch the video for “How Big” now on YouTube.
Monday night, Florence + the Machine held a listening party in London of the band’s third album, NME reports. Tracks from the forthcoming record include songs titled”Ship to Wreck,” “Caught,” “Delilah,” and “What Kind of Man.”
The new album will be Florence’s followup to 2011’s Ceremonials, which scored three nominations at the 2013 Grammys, including Best Pop Vocal album at the 2013 Grammys.
Florence + the Machine will be playing Coachella, Governors Ball and Bonnaroo this summer before hitting the European festival circuit.
