Florence + The Machine’s new track ‘Sky Full Of Song’ is their first since 2015 album ‘How Big, How Blue, How Beautiful’.

“This was a song that just fell out of the sky fully formed,” Florence Welch said of the track.


“Sometimes when you are performing you get so high, it’s hard to know how to come down. There is this feeling of being cracked open, rushing endlessly outwards and upwards, and wanting somebody to hold you still, bring you back to yourself. It’s an incredible, celestial, but somehow lonely feeling.”

Rumours suggest that the new album could be called ‘High As Hope’ and will be released on June 29.
