Published Apr 12, 2018Florence and the Machine have returned with a brand new single titled "Sky Full of Song."
"This was a song that just fell out of the sky fully formed," frontwoman Florence Welch said in a statement. "Sometimes when you are performing you get so high, it's hard to know how to come down. There is this feeling of being cracked open, rushing endlessly outwards and upwards, and wanting somebody to hold you still, bring you back to yourself. It's an incredible, celestial, but somehow lonely feeling."
Seems like she chose the right name for it, then.
"Sky Full of Song" will get a 7-inch vinyl release in conjunction with Record Store Day, but you can listen to and take in the A.G. Rojas-directed music video right now in the player below.
The band's last studio album arrived with 2015's How Big, How Blue, How Beautiful, though they also released Songs from Final Fantasy XV in 2016.
How Big, How Blue, How Beautiful is available through Umusic on double LP or in a box set of singles.
