Florence + The Machine are back.
The UK group announced the arrival of their new album How Big How Blue How Beautiful, while simultaneously releasing their thought-provoking “What Kind Of Man” music video.
Frontwoman Florence Welch describes the concept of the new album:
“I guess although I’ve always dealt in fantasy and metaphor when I came to writing, that meant the songs this time were dealing much more in reality. Ceremonials was so fixated on death and water, and the idea of escape or transcendence through death, but the new album became about trying to learn how live, and how to love in the world rather than trying to escape from it. Which is frightening because I’m not hiding behind anything but it felt like something I had to do.”
How Big How Blue How Beautiful is slated to drop on June 2 in the U.S. and June 1 in the UK. Watch Florence + The Machine’s new video up top.
