Florence + The Machine have announced a series of intimate shows ahead of their support for The Rolling Stones.
The band, fronted by the enigmatic Florence Welch, will take to Halifax, Scunthorpe and London’s Royal Festival Hall in early May, as well as three shows in the United States.
The news comes as the band release their latest track Sky Full Of Song, released in association with Record Store Day.
The song appeared alongside a video directed by A.G. Rojas, backed by a recording of New York Poem (for Polly).
Florence will be releasing her first book this summer, titled Useless Magic; a collection of lyrics, artwork and poetry. It’s due for release on the 5 July 2018.
Sky Full Of Song is the first new material from Florence + The Machine since 2015’s album How Big, How Blue, How Beautiful. Prior to that, the band released debut Lungs in 2009 and Ceremonials in 2011.
Details of a new Florence + The Machine album remain sparse, with rumours suggesting a late June release for the yet to be confirmed High As Hope.
With tracks such as Dog Days, Ship To Wreck and Spectrum (Say My Name) under their belt, the band will be performing hit songs across the three dates, as well as during their support for Rolling Stones.
Here are those Florence + The Machine headline dates:
5 May 2018 – Victoria Theatre, Halifax
6 May 2018 – Scunthorpe Baths Hall, Scunthorpe
