Florence + the Machine shares new single ‘Hunger’ + announces new album, ‘High As Hope’ (June 29th)

Florence + the Machine has today confirmed details of hugely-anticipated new album ‘High As Hope’, which will be released on June 29th on Virgin EMI. The first official single, ‘Hunger’, also premieres today, accompanied by stunning new video directed by AG Rojas.

Unveiled today, ‘Hunger’ already has the feel of a career-defining moment for Florence, pairing her intimate, rawly honest lyricism with a broader sense of acceptance, community and joy. ‘Hunger’ effectively acknowledges those holes in our pysche that we try to fill with love and hate, obsessions or addictions, but you can ultimately only ever satisfy yourself. As Florence herself puts it, “this song is about the ways we look for love in things that are perhaps not love, and how attempts to feel less alone can sometimes isolate us more. I guess I made myself more vulnerable in this song to encourage connection, because perhaps a lot more of us feel this way than we are able to admit. Sometimes when you can’t say it, you can sing it.”
