Florence + The Machine have shared another song from their upcoming album titled How Big, How Blue, How Beautiful, which is slated for an early June, 2015 release. Listen to "Ship To Wreck" above via YouTube.
In a press release, Florence Welch had this interesting comment to say about the song:
I guess I was thinking about my own self destructive side, and how you can make something only to tear it down, enjoy/destroy, create/devastate, etc. When you're in that whirlwind, you often end up breaking the thing you love the most.
"Ship To Wreck" is a full sounding song that carries it's strength from steady drumming, strong basslines, and acoustic guitar strumming in the background. Florence's vocals soar while her lyrics contemplate uncertainty and self-doubt. The addition of orchestral sounds help to give this upbeat rocker an energized sound that pulses with energy.
The video finds Florence battling with her destructive side and mixed feelings for her boyfriend. After waking up from a night of, "What the hell did I do?," she tries to display a "normal" appearance while she has company over. The demons in her head won't leave her alone, and it's a battle that she must face.
