London indie rock group Florence + And The Machine have released "Third Eye," the final chapter to The Odyssey, the music video series in tandem with their 2015 album How Big, How Blue, How Beautiful. You can watch the full to the 47-minute film from the beginning on the YouTube playlist above, or on the band's official website.

The Odyssey, directed by Vincent Haycock, consists entirely of tracks from the LP: "What Kind of Man," "St. Jude," "Ship To Wreck," "Queen of Peace," "Long and Lost" and "Delilah." Vocalist and band leader Florence Welch, made a statement about the film:

This is the finale of a very personal project that came from a conversation me and Vince had in the Chateau Marmont about a year and a half ago while I was writing How Big How Blue How Beautiful. I was talking to him about the record and the car crash of a relationship break up I was going through. The highs and the lows of love and performance, how out of control I felt, the purgatory of heartbreak, and how I was trying to change and trying to be free. And we decided we would re-tell this story in full. We would re-claim this experience, re-imagine it and in some way perhaps I would come to understand it, to exorcise it. And so the Big Blue Odyssey began...

The triumphant "Third Eye" ties the film together with Florence running from her demons. The video ends with her powerful a cappella vocals, as she takes the stage and the audience cheers.

How Big, How Blue, How Beautiful, the band's third album, is available for purchase on Amazon. You can also stream it and read our review right here on Zumic.
