Florence + The Machine have detailed their new album, Dance Fever in an Instagram post.
The record is set to serve as their first new album since 2018’s High As Hope. Taking to her personal Instagram account, frontwoman Florence Welch announced the album’s title, Dance Fever, and shared its artwork. The art depicts Welch in front of a picturesque golden moon, surrounded by branches and butterflies.
“A fairytale in 14 songs,” Welch wrote of Dance Fever in the caption. Details like a release date and tracklist for the album have yet to be revealed.

It’s been pretty clear over the last few weeks that Florence + The Machine have been in album mode. After returning with their first single, “King,” the band shared another song just two weeks later, “Heaven Is Here.”
“King” is an epic tune that sees Welch looking at her identity as a woman in music. he vulnerable, yet powerful anthem sees Welch belting lines like “I am no mother, I am no bride, I am king” in her signature powerhouse vocals. “Heaven Is Here,” on the other hand, is a sparse tune, full of empty melodic space that Welch fills with her quintessential wails. It’s a percussion-heavy track with perfectly unpredictable acoustic guitar lines.
“‘Heaven is Here’ was the first song I wrote in lockdown after an extended period of not being able to get to the studio,” Florence Welch explains. “I wanted to make something monstrous and this clamous of joy, fury and grief was the first thing that came out.”
Much like the artwork for Dance Fever, Autumn de Wilde created videos for both songs.
