The wait is over – we're now getting our first chance to hear what Florence Welch up her sleeve for album number two. Her debut, Lungs, took the music world by storm in 2009 and, by the sound of new single 'What The Water Gave Me', she's ready to do it all again. You can download the single right now. if you fancy giving it a preview spin first, and also check out the accompanying video, look no further than below this very line.
The album is set to follow on November 7.
Florence And The Machine frontwoman Florence Welch has shared some insight into the writing process of the currently untitled follow-up.
In an interview with Nylon Magazine, the flame-haired singer revealed that the lyrical content of the next album will have a supernatural and personal feel.
''A lot of the songs on the new album are about imaginary things," she said. "Things that you can't touch: ghosts and rumours, my dead grandmother, things visiting you in a dream.
As Welch approaches her mid-twenties, she has taken the time to pause and reflect on her life.
"It feels as if there's still a lot of questioning left to do," she said. "Just because I'm happy in my relationship, I've still got issues to deal with. I'm going to be 25 and I feel like I've got to be a grown-up now. I feel like your life is always a battle between safety and freedom.''
