Florence + the Machine’s ‘Spectrum’ Comes Into Focus in Behind-the-Scenes Video
It’s time for Florence + the Machine to lighten up, and that’s exactly what happens in their upcoming video for ‘Spectrum.’ The band recently shot the clip with acclaimed director David LaChapelle, and there’s now a behind-the-scenes featurette about the process that’s turned up as a tease for the video.
In the clip, we get to see Florence Welch having fun with the process. She states to LaChapelle, “This song is one of the brightest and obviously one with a positive message on the record. It’s big and it’s colorful and I started thinking about color and all the different color images in my head. This rainbow idea came up, and it’s just something about your work, and so that was kind of in my dream scenario.”
That dream scenario finds Welch backed throughout the clip by ballet dancers while she herself dances and sings in a sparkly dress, and also gets to don a silver frock and wear a tiara. In addition, the full clip will feature a younger Florence-lookalike ballerina getting to show off her moves.
The singer says, “What we’re making here is a visual cacophony. Controlled chaos is what I wanted it to be like.” The video for the new single is expected to debut at the singer’s website this Wednesday, May 30.
