Florence and the Machine’s new album Ceremonials is due out in less than a week, but you can listen to a stream of the album below. The official release date is set for October 31st.
The album is the band’s follow-up to their highly successful debut album Lungs, and has been described by producer Paul Epworth as “more stripped down, but it’s heavy, rhythmically.”
Frontwoman Florence Welch has said that she feels compelled to dark subjects on the new album: “It still feels like I’m very much drawn to dark metaphors in the new songs. It always feels like as if with each song you write, you’re trying to understand something about yourself: Why am I this way? What’s wrong with me?”
Maybe it’s because she’s been possessed by witchcraft?
The album will be available in Deluxe, Standard and LP formats, and every pre-order comes with a free limited edition poster print.
You can pre-order it now from the Florence and the Machine online store.
