Listen to Florence + the Machine’s New Song, ‘Ship to Wreck’
Weeks after releasing their video for "St. Jude," Florence and the Machine have dropped another new track off their long-awaited third record, How Big, How Blue, How Beautiful, "Ship to Wreck." Listen to it above.
Unlike the more orchestral instrumental arrangements that were on Ceremonials, this song runs along the same vein as "Dog Days Are Over." With its no-frills quick tempo, the tune carries a little bit of a Fleetwood Mac feel to it. While it's a song that you can quickly start bobbing your head to, the context is a little heavier than the melody conveys.
“I was thinking about my own self destructive side," Florence Welch said in a statement, "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 for this track, which was filmed in Welch's own home, is set to hit the web next week. After being tossed around in "What Kind of Man" and flexing her dramatic acting chops in the somber "St. Jude" visual, we're curious to see what she comes up with next.
How Big How Blue How Beautiful will hit the streets on June 2 via Island Records.
