Florence + The Machine have shared their new song Big God. It was produced by Florence Welch and Emilie Haynie, co-written by Jamie xx, and features sax from Kamasi Washington. You can hear the song below.
The much-acclaimed UK group, led by Florence Welch, are set to release their new album High As Hope on 29 June. The new record is the much-anticipated follow-up to 2016’s’ How Big, How Blue, How Beautiful.
The new track, Big God, was previously confirmed to be arriving later today, 19 June in a post on the band’s official Twitter page. “Big God. Tomorrow. @ZaneLowe @Beats1 World Record,” the tweet read. The artwork for the single was also featured, showing a pink rose reflected on a black background.
The track follows the previously-released ‘Hunger’ and ‘Sky Full Of Song‘. Florence + The Machine also previewed two more new tracks at a recent show in Halifax in the form of ‘100 Years’ and ‘Patricia’. As uDiscover Music previously reported, the group has announced a major North American tour for the summer of 2018, during which they will be supported by St. Vincent, Lizzo, Perfume Genius, Kamasi Washington, Grizzly Bear, and more. Later on, they set to head out on a headline tour of UK arenas during November.
Florence Welch recently discussed the creation of High As Hope on Annie Mac’s BBC Radio 1 show, explaining how she changed her modus operandi to work on the making of the new record. “It’s interesting because I think I never knew how to come down after a tour before, so I would just go on a massive bender,” she said. “And I wasn’t doing that, so I just went straight back into the studio.”
