New tunes from our favourite well-mannered, flame-haired songstress.
The follow up to Florence & The Machineâ€™s much-loved debut, Lungs, is headed for our iPods very soon! The dreamy art-pop album, What the Water Gave Me, which was produced in the famous Studio 3 of Abbey Road (where the Beatles recorded Revolver and Pink Floyd Dark Side Of The Moon), is due for release on November 11.
But the title track isnâ€™t for usâ€¦ â€śItâ€™s a song for the waterâ€ť, says Florence.
â€śBecause in music and art what Iâ€™m really interested in are the things that are overwhelming. The ocean seems to me to be natureâ€™s great overwhelmer. When I was writing this song I was thinking a lot about all those people whoâ€™ve lost their lives in vain attempts to save their loved ones from drowning. Itâ€™s about water in all forms and all bodies. Itâ€™s about a lot of things; Virginia Woolf creeps into it, and of course Frieda Kahlo, whose painfully beautiful painting gave me the title.â€ť
