Welch has collaborated with Autumn De Wilde among others for her new era, providing us with artistic and sumptuous visuals we've come to expect from her.

Heaven Is Here, the second cut to be take from the album, sees Welch enlist the choreographer skills of Ryan Heffington for a powerful piece.

Speaking of the track, Welch revealed: "Heaven is Here was the first song I wrote in lockdown after an extended period of not being able to get to the studio. I wanted to make something monstrous. And this clamour of joy, fury and grief was the first thing that came out…"

She added: "With dance studios also shut it was my dream to one day create choreography with it. So it’s one of the first pieces of music I have made specifically with contemporary dance in mind."

Dance Fever follows 2009's Lungs, 2011's Ceremonials, 2015's How Big, How Blue, How Beautiful and 2018's High As Hope.
