The announcement comes after Welch and co surprise released two new songs late last month, ‘Moderation’ and b-side ‘Haunted House’.
The release of the studio recording of ‘Moderation’ track came 12 days after the track was given its live debut. It was first played by Florence Welch and her band during their show at Perth’s RAC Arena on January 12.
Speaking to Zane Lowe on Apple Music’s Beats 1, Welch said: “‘Moderation’ was written during the time I was writing ‘High As Hope’. It was one of those instant songs but didn’t fit with the theme of the record cos I knew I wasn’t writing a relationship record.
“It’s about reaching outwards and being cross that someone can’t give you what you want, but the chorus came from a childhood memory of being told off in church.”
