Florence + The Machine have shared their new single ‘Moderation’, which was first showcased live as part of the ‘High As Hope’ tour in Australia recently. The song recently premiered on Zane Lowe’s Beats 1 show and you can listen to it below.
Produced by James Ford, ‘Moderation’ demonstrates Florence Welch’s confidence ride high when it comes to love and relationships. “Want me to love you in moderation? Do I look moderate to you?” she sings with defiance and self-assurance on the track.
In contrast, ‘Moderation’ is backed by the more delicate ‘Haunted House’. Produced by Matthew Daniel Siskin (Gambles), it’s a heartfelt song that captures Welch’s more intimate vocal style. “My heart is like a haunted house, there’s things in there that scratch about. They make their music in the night and in the day, they give me such a fright”, runs the song’s lyric. You can listen to ‘Haunted House’ below’.
2018 was a remarkable year for Florence Welch, whose fourth album High As Hope was released to wide acclaim. She received her third Mercury Prize nomination for the record and more recently has been shortlisted for both an ‘Album Of The Year’ and ‘British Female Solo Artist’ in this years’ BRITS nominations.
After its release, High As Hope, which featured singles ‘Hunger’, ‘Sky Full Of Song’, ‘Big God’ and Patricia’, was transformed into a new live show which saw Florence + the Machine perform across a full arena tour of the UK including two sold out dates at the O2 – all of which received incredible 5 star reviews across the board. The Independent called the shows “breathtaking”, while The Telegraph simply dubbed the band’s performances as “a stunning spectacle.”
For 2019, Florence + The Machine have so far announced a European headline tour for March followed by festival performances including The Governors Ball in New York, Rockwertcher and a headline show at BST in Hyde Park on 13 July.
