With Arctic Monkeys announcing their new album details and now Florence + The Machine making their return with new single “Sky Full of Song”, it’s been a great couple of weeks for fans of that era of British music. For Florence + The Machine, “Sky Full of Song” marks a great return to form from the group who have spent the last few years out of the spotlight.
As we get closer and closer to Record Store Day (April 21st), the release of “Sky Full of Song” has taken on another special layer, with the announcement that it will be released on a limited edition double A-sided 7″ inch vinyl. Accompanying the vinyl, this RSD release will also be featuring “New York poem (for Polly)”, a recording lifted from Useless Magic – a collection of lyrics, poetry and artwork, a collection which will eventually become Florence’s debut book.
She says of “Sky Full of Song”…
“This was a song that just fell out of the sky fully formed. Sometimes when you are performing you get so high, it’s hard to know how to come down. There is this feeling of being cracked open, rushing endlessly outwards and upwards, and wanting somebody to hold you still, bring you back to yourself. It’s an incredible, celestial, but somehow lonely feeling.
