Florence Welch and her gang of machines just released the latest single from their upcoming album How Big, How Blue, How Beautiful, and it’s called “Ship To Wreck.”
The new song is a real foot tapper. It’s got a more easygoing, west coast vibe than the last single, “What Makes A Man“, but Welch’s soulful voice steals the show (as always). “Did I drink too much? Am I losing touch? Did I build a ship to wreck?” she asks.
Florence herself describes the song by saying:
“I was thinking about my own self destructive side, and how you can make something only to tear it down, enjoy/destroy, create/devastate etc. When you’re in that whirlwind, you often end up breaking the thing you love the most”.
The video, filmed in Welch’s home, will premiere next week.
