Florence + the Machine Release New Single “Sky Full of Song”
Florence + the Machine have released a brand new track, “Sky Full Of Song”, and video directed by A.G. Rojas. The single will be available as a limited edition, double A-side 7” vinyl, in partnership with Record Store Day on April 21. Watch the video for “Sky Full Of Song” below.
The Record Store Day vinyl release of “Sky Full Of Song” will be accompanied by a recording of “New York poem (for Polly),” taken from Welch’s forthcoming book Useless Magic. The book will be a collection of lyrics, artwork and poetry, giving readers a new insight on her creative process, and will be available July 5 via Crown Publishing/Penguin.
“This was a song that just fell out of the sky fully formed,” says Florence Welch about the new song. “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.”
