The last time that Florence Welch graced us with great new original music was back in 2015 with How Big, How Blue, How Beautiful. With that album, we were given “What Kind of Man”, “Ship to Wreck”, and “Queen of Peace” to enjoy and return to periodically. (Today’s playlisting trend typically doesn’t allow for return trips to songs other than a ‘catch’ on YouTube or radio.) Today, I still frequently return to “Dog Days Are Over”, and “Drumming Song” from her first album, Lungs (2009).
Recently, it’s been rumored that the new Florence + The Machine have a new album arriving. The sources are credible and so, with that, I’ll simply repeat the ‘rumors’ for you, just so you’re aware.
On June 29, a new Florence + The Machine album is expected to be released. The new album is being called High As Hope, and will deliver ten new songs in the standard release, leaving speculation to an expanded Deluxe Edition. A new song, “Sky Full of Song” is expected this week.
I’ll be sure to keep a sharp eye out for official announcements!
