The forthcoming ‘Dance Fever’ has been previewed with the tracks ‘King’, ‘Heaven Is Here’ and most recently ‘My Love’. Welch previously described the record as “a fairytale in 14 songs”.
Produced by Welch alongside Jack Antonoff and Glass Animals‘ Dave Bayley, the album was largely recorded in London over the course of the COVID pandemic as Welch anticipated the return of clubs, live music and dancing at festivals.
The ‘High As Hope’ follow-up brings back the more “anthemic” side of F+TM, containing shades of “dance, folk, ‘70s Iggy Pop, longing-for-the-road folk tracks a la Lucinda Williams or Emmylou Harris and more”.
Florence + The Machine are due to perform at a host of European festivals this summer, including Flow Festival, Øya Festival and Mad Cool Festival.
