Huge news on the Florence Welch front. As if a teaser trailer wasn’t enough this week already, Florence + The Machine have announced details of their HOTLY anticipated third album along with the thoroughly epic reveal of lead single ‘What Kind Of Man’ (see above)…
 
After a tidy hiatus Florence is back with ‘How Big How Blue How Beautiful’ which is scheduled for release on June 01. Written and recorded over the course of 2014 and produced by Markus Dravs (Björk, Arcade Fire, Coldplay) with contributions from Paul Epworth, Kid Harpoon and John Hill, the third album by Florence + The Machine is set to be live-sounding, tune-rich, unhinged in all the right places and powerful in all the best ways…
 
Florence + The Machine announce brand new album plans
Speaking on the release, Florence Welch revealed…
 
“It was sort of a crash landing … 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.”
 
“Markus has done a few Arcade Fire albums,” she explains, “and he’s done Björk’s Homogenic, which is a huge record for me. And I felt he had that balance of organic and electronic capabilities, managing those two worlds. And, you know, he’s good with big sounds. And l like big sounds. And he’s good with trumpets, and I knew I wanted a brass section on this record,” she adds of a group of musicians who were arranged by Will Gregory of Goldfrapp.
