Florence + The Machine - How Big How Blue How Beautiful


Florence Welch has offered an intriguing sample from her forthcoming third album, the first new material since 2011's Ceremonials.

The video, directed by Tabitha Denholm and Vincent Haycock, is titled How Big, How Blue, How Beautiful and features an extravagant clip of the singer dancing with a doppleganger in an exotic open air amphitheatre.

The NME reports that the album was played in full at a special listening party in Shoreditch, London last night (9 Feburary).

Florence And The Machine are due to play Coachella in April, before heading out on the festival circuit for shows at Benicassim (Spain), Bonaroo (USA), Hurricane/Southside (Germany), Øya (Norway), Way Out West (Sweden) and Flow (Finland).
