Florence + The Machine have made a surprise return with a beautiful new ballad called ‘Sky Full of Song’.
This is the band’s first new music since 2016, and came without any sort of warning. It’s being released in partnership with Record Store Day, and will be also be sold on a limited edition, double-A-sided 7″ vinyl.
Of the song, Florence Welch says, “This was a song that just fell out of the sky fully formed. 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.”
