Florence + The Machine’s third album thought to be almost finished

Fan site posts photo of record being mixed

Florence + The Machine‘s forthcoming third album is thought to be almost finished after a fansite posted a photo showing the album being mixed in a recording studio.

Fan site Florence and The Machine Army posted the photo over the weekend, with the title of the record being hidden by a sharpie pen. The photo has since been removed, but can be viewed here.

Earlier this year, Florence Welch confirmed that she was working on a third Florence + The Machine album. It will be the first since the singer’s debut album ‘Lungs’ in 2009 and its follow-up ‘Ceremonials’ in 2011.
