Florence And The Machine name new album 'Ceremonials'
Potential tracklisting and release date also revealed on iTunes pre-order page
According to a pre-order page for the LP on the iTunes Store, the 13-track record has an expected release date of October 31.
The page lists songs such as 'Spectrum', 'Never Let Me Go', 'Breaking Down', 'Lover To Lover' and 'No Light, No Light' as appearing on the album, along with 'What The Water Gave Me', which was recently released online as a taster track.
Singer Florence Welch recently told NME that the album, the follow-up to 2009's 'Lungs', is built around the "big" themes of "love, death, violence and guilt". She commented:
There's big moments of confession in it, overcoming your demons and trying to find in song the ultimate hangover cure.
The LP was recorded at London's Abbey Road Studios with producer Paul Epworth, who recently tweeted there were "no weak [tracks]" on the LP. He added that it was "more stripped down" but also "much heavier" than 'Lungs'.
The tracklisting for 'Ceremonials' has now been confirmed as:
'Only If For The Night'
'Shake It Out'
'What The Water Gave Me'
'Never Let Me Go'
'Lover To Lover'
'No Light, No Light'
'All This And Heaven Too'
'Leave My Body'
