Florence + The Machine debut new song and video for Big God

June 21, 2018

  Today Florence + The Machine debut a new song and video. The new track is titled Big God. The video is choreographed by Akram Khan and Florence and directed by Autumn de Wilde. The song is the third track released from their highly anticipated fourth studio album, High As Hope. About the new track,  Florence comments,   ‘Big God’ was written about that feeling when someone has not replied to your text, the modern phenomenon of ‘Ghosting’ which is one of my favourite words but not my favourite feeling. I was describing it to someone and they said to me ‘You need a big god’, as if the need in me were so cavernous, it would take something enormous to fill it. Probably something bigger than a text message. It’s always been a very physical song. I saw a dance piece in my head as I was writing it, so to co choreograph something with Akram Khan was a huge honour. Autumn de Wilde fully understood what I was trying to do. The power of the desire within the void, left with yourself to rage and wonder [Read More]
