Florence and The Machine Debut New Songs During Concert
. (Radio.com) Florence and The Machine's new album won't be out until June, but fans at her London concert on Wednesday night (March 4) were treated to an early preview.
The band has already revealed the first single, "What Kind of Man" from the album, How Big How Blue How Beautiful, but also revealed additional tracks "St. Jude," "Third Eye," and the album's title track.
According to NME, she told the crowd that the title track was recorded in LA "on that day I got you [pointing to collaborator Isabella Summers] that outfit and we dressed up as Prince."
Adding, "It was the first song that was written for How Big, How Blue, How Beautiful and it means a lot to me. It's incredible to be able to play it for you for the first time."
The track, which you can listen to above, has her starting with the line, "Between a crucifix and a Hollywood sign" and includes some of those horns we heard in the album's trailer. Not to mention some very soulful backup singers.
On "Third Eye," a song she tells the crowd she thought was for someone else, but was probably for her--if you know what she means--has a stomping kick drum, more horns and a soulful feel.
With "St. Jude," she says she was followed by "storms, real ones and emotional ones," and the song is definitely a little more reflective then the others. But don't worry, the horns find their place.
Watch the title track, "St. Jude," "Third Eye" and "What Kind of Man," respectively here.
