It’s been a while since we’ve heard from Florence + The Machine, but they’re all over the festival circuit this summer, and it seems likely that they’ll soon come out with a follow-up to 2011’s soaring Ceremonials. And while there’s still no news of an album, Florence came out with a new video today, and it sure seems to be building up to something. The new song “How Big, How Blue, How Beautiful” feels very much like an intro track; it’s three minutes of horns welling up and Florence Welch’s voice inching toward operatic territory. In the clip, Welch does an interpretive dance on a wooded stage with a woman who looks a whole lot like her. Tabitha Denholm and Vincent Haycock directed the video. Watch it below.
We’ll let you know about a new Florence album as soon as the news drops. In the meantime, why not go back and listen to Ceremonials again? That’s a good album!
