New single news, album launch show and limited ed. vinyls

Posted by Poisoned Apathy on Wednesday, October 26, 2011

Hey all,

Today we come with a bunch of Flo related news.

First all, last night was the album launch party in London, which included an almost full live presentation of Ceremonials.

Here you have a video interview with Flo backstage at the event and the setlist.

 

Only if for a night
What the water gave me
Heartlines
Cosmic love
Breaking down (interlude)
Lover to lover 
Leave my body
Dog days are over
Shake it out
Rabbit Heart (raise it up)
Spectrum

Never let me go (w/ Kid Harpoon)
No light, no light

On another news, No Light, No Light will be the album’s next single and Flo has already shooted a video for it, which we’ll probably see very soon.

Also, Florence + the Machine have team up with designer Karl Lagerfield and The Vinyl Factory for a series of luxury limited edition vinyls.

The first out of these is Ceremonial‘s first single Shake It Out, and is gonna be backed with The Weeknd remix of the track.

Each cover has been screen printed, silver foiled and hand numbered on pristine white card and features a unique series of photographic portraits personally taken by the fashion legend, which will remain exclusive to these releases.

Each sleeve houses a heavyweight 180-gram white vinyl contained in a silver inner bag. The record itself is the only physical release of Shake It Out.

Hello all!!!

Well, I’m not gonna lie to you. I haven’t been so excited about Florence related news in a long while!! Been waiting to say this to you for so long – the second album is finished!!!

Yes, yes it is!! The album is still untitled, but it’ll be released in the UK next November 7th via Island Records, and it’ll be released sometime that same month in the US.

You can listen to the first track off the album ‘What the Water Gave Me’ below, and at the end you will find a link to a recent interview with her at Pitchfork.com on the new record.

Paul Epworth talks about album two

Posted by Poisoned Apathy on Monday, August 15, 2011

Hi all!

Great news coming from Flo’s producer Paul Epworth!
It seems that the recording of the songs for Florence + the Machine second album has been finally completed!!

Here’s what he said on his twitter:

“Had a week of wonderful mixes coming in for Florence 2. I love handing something over to hear it come back better. I feel for the a&r dept having to try and whittle these tracks down to 10 or 12 because there really are no weak ones”

“It’s a weird record that sounds live in ways and like a machine in others, with sensitivity and power from both the music and Flo’s voice.”

Don’t know about you, but I’m getting really excited for this record!
We’ve been waiting long time for it, since wonderful debut album Lungs came out in 2009.

It’s been a great journey for Flo and her band, since those humble beginnings to her latest triumphant performances. The world is at her feet, just as it should be!

The album hasn’t got a tittle yet, and there’s no official release date, but now the recordings are done, this shouldn’t be much delayed.
