Florence + The Machine’s new video for ‘Free’ stars Bill Nighy

Florence + The Machine have shared a new Bill Nighy-starring video for “Free.”

The track comes from their forthcoming album, Dance Fever, out May 13th via Polydor. On “Free” frontwoman Florence Welch sings of the joy of release post-pandemic. With lo-fi electronics and uplifting lyricism, Welch sings of the power and euphoria of music and performance.

Directed by Autumn De Wilde, the “Free” video sees Welch playing herself, while Nighy (Love Actually, Pirates Of The Caribbean) plays the role of Welch’s anxiety.

Watch the video for “Free” below.
 


 
Frontwoman Florence Welch called the forthcoming album, Dance Fever, a “fairytale in 14 songs.” She produced the album alongside Jack Antonoff and Glass Animals’ Dave Bayley.

The forthcoming follow-up to 2018’s High As Hope was inspired by choreomania, according to a press release. It’s “a Renaissance phenomenon in which groups of people – sometimes thousands – danced wildly to the point of exhaustion, collapse and death.”

In addition to “Free,” Dance Fever features previously released singles “My Love,” “King,” and “Heaven Is Here.”
