Florence + The Machine’s new song ‘Heaven is Here’ is a ‘clamour of joy, fury and grief’

Just two weeks after the release of their comeback single “King,” Florence + The Machine are back with a video for their new track, “Heaven is Here.”

“Heaven is Here” is a sparse tune, full of empty melodic space that Welch fills with her quintessential wails. It’s a percussion-heavy tune with perfectly unpredictable acoustic guitar lines. The accompanying video was directed by Autumn de Wilde and choreographed by Ryan Heffington. Welch envisioned choreography for the track, and in the video, that truly comes to life.

“‘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. 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.”

On February 23rd, Florence + The Machine shared a video for “King.” On the epic new tune, frontwoman Florence Welch is looking at her identity as a woman in music. The 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.

It seems like Florence + The Machine could be in album mode, with the speedy release of “King” and Heaven is Here.”
