Although Florence Welch maintains her fiery locks, she’ll soon be singing her own version of “I am Not My Hair” as the tone of Florence + the Machine’s latest album (which the band began recording this month) is going dark. In the latest issue of NYLON magazine, Florence revealed a few details about the follow-up to 2009′s Lungs.
On the darker themes of the new songs Welch noted:
“It still feels like I’m very much drawn to dark metaphors in the new songs. It always feels like as if with each song you write, you’re trying to understand something about yourself: Why am I this way? What’s wrong with me? It feels as if there’s still a lot of questioning left to do.”
Florence + the Machine is also using producer Paul Epworth this time around, who has worked with Adele and Kate Nash. In a recent blog post, the band noted that they were recording the new record at Abbey Road Studios — but hadn’t managed to take a replica Beatles photo outside.
While the major details of the album, such as album title or release date have yet to be revealed, Florence + the Machine have been on the performance circuit. Starting June 9th, the band will begin a summer tour, performing first at Bonnaroo in Tennesse.
Until then, get your dose of Florence + the Machine with their May 3rd performance at the Met Ball!
