Florence + the Machine are set to release 'Never Let Me Go' as the follow up to 'No Light, No Light' on April 2nd on Island Records.
This emotionally charged huge song is suffused with an elegantly weary grandiloquence, gospel chords shine the way for a multi-tracked flock of Florence's to soar in free flight.
'The gospel thing comes from my obsession with hymns. I'm drawn to anything that has a hymnal quality, be it Spiritualized or dusty old albums by Georgian choirs.'
In the four months since the release of Ceremonials, love for Florence's second album continues apace, with the record a mainstay of the UK and US chart top 10s with worldwide sales now in excess of 1.5 million.
Fresh from a non-stop globe-spanning jaunt of live shows (the US, Brazil and a first visit to Japan), and a performance at the BRIT Awards, last night in London Florence won not one but two NME Awards, capping an amazing few months. She went home with Best Solo Act and Best Track for 'Shake It Out'. Flo also graced the ceremony at Brixton Academy with a stripped down performance of 'Shake It Out' plus a duet with The Horrors on their track 'Still Life'.
Florence will now embark on her biggest UK tour to date. All 120,000 tickets for the spring tour have been snapped up by her ever expanding army of fans up and down the country.
