Florence and The Machine have unveiled new details about their upcoming album and shared a new music video for the track ‘What Kind Of Man’.
The English indie group will release their upcoming LP titled, How Big, How Blue, How Beautiful, on May 29th.
Florence and The Machine’s last record titled Ceremonials, was released over three years ago and the follow up has been in the pipeline for quite some time.
Ceremonials was a massive success, it went to number one on the Irish album charts and has been certified by the Irish Recorded Music Association as a 3x platinum selling LP.
How Big, How Blue, How Beautiful is due to be released on June 1st. The record was by Markus Dravs, who previously worked with Arcade Fire on their albums Neon Bible, The Suburbs and Reflektor. As well as producing Bjork, Mumford & Sons and Coldplay’s Viva la Vida or Death and All His Friends.
Speaking about the producer, the band’s singer Florence Welch said: “Markus has done a few Arcade Fire albums and he’s done Björk’s ‘Homogenic’, which is a huge record for me. And I felt he had that balance of organic and electronic capabilities, managing those two worlds. And, you know, he’s good with big sounds. And l like big sounds. And he’s good with trumpets, and I knew I wanted a brass section on this record.”

They are rumoured to be playing Glastonbury, Reading and Leeds festivals and hopefully Electric Picnic in 2015.
