Florence Welch: ‘I’m still learning how to sing’

Songstress says she has reined her vocals in on album number two

Florence And The Machine‘s Florence Welch has spoken about the recording of her second album and says she believes she is “still learning how to sing”.

The singer, who released ‘What The Water Gave Me’ last week, the first track from the follow-up to her 2009 debut album ‘Lungs’, has said she has controlled her vocals a lot more on her second LP and “reined in” her singing.

Asked about whether she had been more measured with her use of her voice on her second album, she told Zane Lowe on BBC Radio 1:

I’m still learning how to sing. I’m learning restraint. When I first started singing, I just used to scream all the time. When I first played in pubs and clubs with just an electric guitar it was the only way to get people to pay attention, but I think I’ve got more control now having performed a lot more, I’m still screaming at some points though.

Florence And The Machine will release their as yet untitled second album on November 7. An official single will be released before that date, the title of which is again still be confirmed.
