Short intro

How Big, How Blue, How Beautiful is the third studio album by English indie rock band Florence and the Machine. It was released on 29 May 2015, by Island Records. After returning from her year-long hiatus from music, lead vocalist Florence Welch returned to configure How Big, How Blue, How Beautiful, recording material that dealt with personal conflicts and struggles. In comparison to their last two studio albums, the album is much more refined and stripped-down instrumentally, and incorporates a. Florence Welch touched on the album in a press release: I guess although Ive always dealt in fantasy and metaphor when I came to writing, that meant the songs this time were dealing much more in reality. Ceremonials was so fixated on death and water, and the idea of escape or transcendence through death, but the new album became about trying to learn how live, and how to love in the world rather than trying to escape from it. Which is frightening because Im not hiding behind anything but it felt like something I had to do. Produced by Markus Dravs Björk, Arcade Fire, Coldplay, the album al.

Favorite tracks: Mother, Ship to Wreck, How Big How Blue How Beautiful, Third Eye, What Kind of Man, Queen of Peace. Arriving three-and-a-half years after 2011's well-received Ceremonials, the 11-track set, the first Florence the Machine album to be produced by Markus Dravs Arcade Fire, Coldplay, eschews some of the bombast and water- and death-fixated metaphors of Lungs and Ceremonials in favor of a more restrained sonic scope and an honest reckoning with the dark. Accordingly, her band's third studio album How Big, How Blue, How Beautiful is one long Ophelia mad scene, a breakup record from the point of view of someone who is absolutely convinced that her breakup is the most devastating thing that has ever happened to anyone. She makes a pretty good case for that, to be fair. It takes an alarming seriousness of purpose to pull this stuff off-the campy playfulness of Florence and the Machine's 2009 debut single Kiss With a Fist wouldn't do. Florence Welch - Florence and the Machine. Andy Keilen. Florence and the Machines 2012 MTV Unplugged set was startling. Here was Florence Welchs magnificently wayward choir-girl voice laid bare, shorn of cathedral reverb and synth swaddle, singing hits and covers including Otis Reddings Try a Little Tenderness backed by wooden instruments and candles. Album 2015 16 Songs. This sense of immediacy and alertness infuses the bands most mature, cohesive album yet, starting with propulsive opener Ship to Wreck. Lush arrangements combine a rock band, strings, and brass with Welchs volcanic, soaring voice, serving high drama on tracks like the driving What Kind of Man and the transcendent Mother. She gets it occasionally on How Big, How Blue, How Beautiful, and the results are brilliant, but the album too often focuses on the latter two-thirds of the album title at the expense of the first. Hopefully someday well get the action-packed album Florence deserves, but this time her ships a little too sturdy to really bring the wreckage. Andrew Unterberger. Recommended for you . Florence and the Machine Release High as Hope Outtake Light of Love. by Florence the Machine. Record Label: Island. Release Date: Jun 2, 2015. How Big is Welchs most accomplished album yet, primarily because she doesnt rely solely on operatics to make herself heard. Welch may have gone slightly smaller with her sound, but her emotional depth and capacity for wonder remain gigantic
