Florence + the Machine has today premiered a beautiful brand new track, ‘Sky Full Of Song’. Released without warning in partnership with Record Store Day, a limited edition, double-A-sided 7” vinyl will follow on April 21st, with the AG Rojas-directed video for ‘Sky Full Of Song’ also available to watch now.
Discussing ‘Sky Full Of Song’ for the first time today, Florence writes: “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.”
The Record Store Day release of ‘Sky Full Of Song’ will be backed by a recording of ‘New York poem (for Polly)’, taken from ‘Useless Magic’: a collection of lyrics, artwork and poetry which will form Florence’s first book, and offers a unique, personal insight into her creative process. ‘Useless Magic’ will be released on July 5th via Fig Tree / Penguin.
