Florence + The Machine has shared an introspective outtake from High as Hope called “Light Of Love.”
The track has a simple, yet powerful message as frontwoman Florence Welch hums lines like, “Don’t go blindly into the dark/ In every one of us shines a light of love.” The track opens as a soft piano ballad, with Welch’s lyrics shifting from a late night of partying that goes off track toward some valuable introspection.
“‘Light of Love’ is an unreleased song from High as Hope, it never made it to the record, but I thought I would release it at midnight tonight, as a little token of my love,” Welch wrote on Instagram. “And to raise awareness for the Intensive Care Society, which provides care and support for the incredible doctors, nurses, and healthcare professionals on the front line of this crisis. I will be donating all of my income from this song to the Intensive Care Society.”
