Remember that little album Lungs by Florence + The Machine? Sure you do! Many of you named it as your Favorite Album of 2010 even though it was released in 2009, which I feel is a true mark of a hugely successful and downright spectacular album. Well good news, Florence fans. The yet-to-be-titled new album is set for release on November 7, and the world has been treated to a preview.
Here’s the music video for a stunning new track, “What The Water Gave Me”.
What do you think?
At this point I feel that most people are well aware of just how phenomenal and deserving of that ‘Queen of (Indie) Pop’ title Florence is, but it’s always nice to have a reminder. In terms of new material, “What The Water Gave Me” delivers everything I’ve dreamed about and then some; there’s little doubt that in a few short months Florence’s name will be dominating our Favorite Albums of 2011 list too.
I love it.
One of my favourite things about F+M has always been how well Florence’s voice harmonizes with the music of a harp. There’s something new in every song.
This is so gorgeous and I am beyond excited for the new album.
so pumped for the new album, her music is beautiful and she is quite the fine ginger
This makes me *so* excited for the new album.
*goes off and listens to the old one now*
*exactly what im doing right now – listening to her b sides EP*
Hey look, it’s tomorrow already and I still have it on loop in iTunes. lalala…
this is awesome, can’t wait…
I can already tell it’s going to be awesome.
Awesome enough that I’ll probably actually pay real money for it.
I HAVE NO WORDS FOR HOW EXCITED THIS MAKES ME CAPS LOCK DOESN’T EVEN BEGIN TO DO MY FEELINGS JUSTICE FLORENCE IS THE QUEEN OF EVERYTHING EVER HOLY SHITTTTT
oh gosh i cant even tell you how much i love F+TM. So freakin excited for the new album!!!!!!
Had the pleasure of seeing her live earlier this year and she was fucking amazinggggggggggggggggggggg
what an eargasm, but then all of her songs evoke eargasms
The calm and collected side of me says, I haven’t been this excited about a new album since OK Computer in 1997.
The unrestrainable fangirly side of me says, SQUEEEEEEEEEEEEEE CAPS LOCK CAPS LOCK OMG YAY!!!!!!!
seriously though, florence is the queen of the world. face it.
I love this, and I can’t wait for the new album!
GAH! I’m so happy to finally hear a high quality version of this! All those awful, shaky youtube videos just weren’t cutting it anymore.
I can see how her music is evolving. FATM used to equal powerful ethereal voice + heavy drums + elegant harp flourishes to me. This track really went kind of back to kiss with a fist with its more guitar presence but this time with more bass.
She is just too perfect. I need this album in my life. Cannot wait.
i’m not really diggin’ it… don’t shoot me!
same here! it doesn’t really sound ‘florencey’ without all the subtle harp and twinkley bits, and i guess it’s missing some of the theatricality older florence had.
Her music is like church to my soul. :)
#63 on the list of things the world will probably never have too many of: witchy hippie/hipster women lead singers with snappy style and cute noses.
oh my GOD I can’t even handle this much awesome energy coming from this woman and her VOICE
this video is gorgeous, and i can’t stop hearing this song in my head
