Florence Welch and company have dropped another single ahead of the June 2nd release of their third album ‘How Big, How Blue, How Beautiful’. “Delilah” is the fifth single from the upcoming album, following previously released teasers “What Kind of Man”, “Ship to Wreck”, “St. Jude” and the album’s title track.
The new single starts off slow and heavy, spotlighting frontwoman Florence Welch’s incomparable vocals before building into a bouncy gospel-infused number — appropriately completed with soulful background vocals and hand-clapping. It’s a strong and defiantly exuberant anthem that expresses the simple desire to be free and feel fine.
The indie dance spiritual is an instant festival classic, and with all of Florence & The Machine’s upcoming dates, including appearances at Osheaga and Bestival Toronto, it’s sure to keep music fans dancing barefoot in the grass all summer long.
