Watch: Florence + the Machine - Free
The singer-songwriter teases her new album Dance Fever, with a beautiful and powerful new single.
Indie-pop queen Florence Welch aka Florence + the Machine has been teasing the dawning of a new era, with the release of new music over the past couple of months, singles My Love, King and Heaven is Here. Today she teases another track, which comes ahead of her fifth LP out early next month, an upbeat and deeply personal track titled Free.
Steadily and surely ticking along with a rhythmic bassline and crisp percussion, guitar strums, playful claps, and strings accompany the iconic vocals of the artist as she beautifully yet powerfully flurries her voice around the themes of mental health and its effects on relationships and music. Accompanied by a video starring the singer-songwriter herself (as herself), and acclaimed actor Bill Nighy (as her anxiety), the clip follows the delicate dance between the ups and downs from dining halls, hospital beds, and running through the woods.
Produced by Florence, Jack Antonoff and Dave Bayley of Glass Animals, the fourteen track release is sure not to disappoint long-time fans and new fans alike, as the artists poems come to life set to the overarching theme inspired by the renaissance phenomenon of choreomania.
Whilst we wait for the impact of the LP Dance Fever out May 13, be sure to soak in the beautiful imagery and soaring sounds of Free below.
