Florence + the Machine (aka Florence Welch and backing band) has shared a brand new song, “Sky Full of Song.” It will be released on limited edition 7-inch on Record Store Day (April 21). The song was shared via a video directed by A.G. Rojas, a black & white clip mainly featuring Welch singing the song whilst lying down. Watch it below.

Welch had this to say about the song in a press release: “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.”

The 7-inch will include on the flipside a recording of “New York poem (for Polly),” which is taken from Welch’s forthcoming book, Useless Magic, which is out July 5 via Crown Publishing/Penguin. A press release describes it as “a collection of lyrics, artwork and poetry offering a unique, personal insight into her creative process.”

Florence + the Machine’s most recent album was 2015’s How Big, How Blue, How Beautiful. There’s no word on Welch’s next album, but she is playing some festivals this summer, indicating that she may be releasing a new one this year.
