Florence And The Machine’s new ‘Delilah’ video features goblins and religious cults – watch

Clip is sixth instalment of recent video trilogy

Florence And The Machine have unveiled a new video for ‘How Big, How Blue, How Beautiful’ track ‘Delilah’.

The clip is the latest in a recent video trilogy from singer Florence Welch, following previous instalments for album cuts ‘What Kind of Man’, ‘St. Jude’, ‘Ship to Wreck’, ‘Queen of Peace’ and ‘Long & Lost’.

The video for ‘Delilah’ sees Welch attempting to escape a cult-like group in a US motel while experiencing a series of surreal encounters with goblin-like figures and more. Watch below.

Earlier this week, Florence And The Machine appeared on US TV’s Ellen Degeneres Show, with singer Florence Welch and co performing in a pool of water.

Welch and band played ‘Ship To Wreck’ from third album ‘How Big, How Blue, How Beautiful’. Introducing the performance, host Degeneres described Welch as “one of the greatest live performers in music”.

Florence And The Machine were recently listed with Jamie xx as the bookmakers’ early favourites to win this year’s Mercury Prize.

William Hill are offering odds of 4/1 each for Florence’s ‘How Big, How Blue, How Beautiful’ and Jamie xx’s ‘In Colour’ to pick up the award.

“As always, the Mercury list is a mix of mainstream and eclectic and we do not know how the judges are going to vote,” said William Hill spokesman Joe Crilly. “Our odds suggest they will go for a big act and they do not get much bigger than Florence And The Machine and of course Jamie xx has form in this particular race.”
