FLORENCE AND THE MACHINE have announced a new album. It’s called “High as Hope” and it’s out June 29 via Republic. Find the A.G. Rojas-directed music video for a new song, “Hunger,” below.
“This song is about the ways we look for love in things that perhaps not love, and how attempts to feel less alone can sometimes isolate us more,” band leader Florence Welch said in a statement. “I guess I made myself more vulnerable in this song to encourage connection because perhaps a lot more of us feel this way than we are able to admit. Sometimes when you can’t say it, you can sing it.”
Band leader Florence Welch wrote “High as Hope”. She co-produced the album with Emile Haynie. According to a press release, Kamasi Washington, Sampha, Tobias Jesso Jr., Kelsey Lu, and Jamie xx collaborated on the record. “High as Hope” is the band’s first new record since 2015’s “How Big, How Blue, How Beautiful”. It includes the previously shared “Sky Full of Song.”
