Florence + The Machine announce new album

Florence + The Machine release a new album, How Big, How Blue, How Beautiful on 1st June via Island Records.

Recorded at sessions last year, it was produced by Markus Dravs (Björk, Arcade Fire, Coldplay) with contributions from Paul Epworth, Kid Harpoon and John Hill.

“Markus has done a few Arcade Fire albums,” Florence says, “and he’s done Björk’s 'Homogenic', which is a huge record for me. And I felt he had that balance of organic and electronic capabilities, managing those two worlds. And, you know, he’s good with big sounds. And l like big sounds. And he’s good with trumpets, and I knew I wanted a brass section on this record,” she adds of a group of musicians who were arranged by Will Gregory of Goldfrapp.
