About this item
Florence + the Machine announces new album, ‘High As Hope’. For perhaps the first time, ‘High As Hope’ is a record that is as intimate as it is epic, with the more restrained sound -relatively speaking; Florence knows herself well enough now to declare “I’m never going to be minimal” -mirroring this sense that happiness doesn’t always have to be big and dramatic:There’s a lot of love in this record, loneliness too, but a lot of love.”
An album that mixes high and low–from a tribute to Patti Smith one minute to being ghosted over text by a date the next –‘High As Hope’ is made up, says Florence, “of joy and fury”...
"Towering performer twirls back with power and poetry" - Evening Standard,
"A euphoric return by a singular talent" - Telegraph,
"an appealingly visceral force" - Guardian.
Millie says: Florence returns with her distinctive billowing vocals, holding intimate feelings and powerful strength. ‘High As Hope’ is heaving with emotion and never fails to create the strongest cathartic feelings from the soaring variations weaved into each song. Truly beautiful.
