Florence + the Machine (aka Florence Welch and backing band) has shared a video for her new song, “King.” View the Autumn de Wilde-directed video below.

“As an artist, I never actually thought about my gender that much,” Welch states in a press release. “I just got on with it. I was as good as the men and I just went out there and matched them every time. But now, thinking about being a woman in my 30s and the future, I suddenly feel this tearing of my identity and my desires. That to be a performer, but also to want a family might not be as simple for me as it is for my male counterparts. I had modeled myself almost exclusively on male performers, and for the first time I felt a wall come down between me and my idols as I had to make decisions they did not.”

In 2020, Welch shared the song “Light of Love.” Her most recent album, High as Hope, came out in 2018 via Republic.
