Florist has dropped “Celebration” from her forthcoming album, Emily Alone, which drops on July 26th.
The new track is a hybrid folk track, revolving around a simple acoustic guitar line, ambient sounds from nature, and simple synths as frontwoman Emily Sprague delivers a powerful spoken word-style vocal line.
“‘Celebration’ is a love song for darkness and the peaceful end to all things,” Sprague explains to The FADER. “A song in three movements: reality, fantasy, memory. In a lot of ways this song is the thesis to Emily Alone. Minimal arrangements – acoustic guitars, synthesizers, and voice accompanied by the ambient sounds of earth. Birds and water. The song begins with an experience of the now.”
