Florence + the Machine have new song "Heaven is Here." The song follows "King," released last month, and comes with a video directed by Autumn De Wilde. In a note on Instagram Florence Welch noted that the video was shot in Kyiv, Ukraine late last year and that two of the dancers involved in the shoot are currently sheltering from Russian forces as part of the ongoing invasion in the eastern European country.
Speaking more specifically about the new song, Welch added: "'Heaven is Here' was the first song I wrote in lockdown after an extended period of not being able to get to the studio. I wanted to make something monstrous. And this clamour of joy, fury and grief was the first thing that came out.
"With dance studios also shut it was my dream to one day create choreography with it. So it’s one of the first pieces of music I have made specifically with contemporary dance in mind."
The last Florence + the Machine, High As Hope, was released in 2018.
