Florence And The Machine have recorded a new track 'Breath Of Life' for the soundtrack to the forthcoming Hollywood blockbuster Snow White And The Huntsman and you can hear it now by scrolling down to the bottom of the page and clicking.

The track, which features a large orchestra, was recorded in Los Angeles and, according to singer Florence Welch is inspired by the film's character of the evil Queen Ravenna, played by Charlize Theron.

Speaking about the track, Welch said: "The Queen is just this incredible character; so hungry for life but so dead inside. She's sort of eternal, but inside there's nothing. She's kind of like charcoal or something. She has this thirst for youth and for life, but for what kind of life? This darkness, but she's so beautiful, so it's this kind of juxtaposition between beauty and, ultimately, death."

The soundtrack is due for release on May 29 in the US, with the rest of the tracklisting still to be confirmed.

Snow White And The Huntsman stars Twilight actress Kristen Stewart and Thor's Chris Hemsworth as well as Theron and is due to be released into UK cinemas on June 1. You can watch the trailer for Snow White And The Huntsman by scrolling down to the bottom of the page and clicking.

Florence And The Machine released a new live album on April 9, which was recorded at the band's MTV Unplugged performance late last year.
