Video! I had no idea the new album's coming out in June. So excited. How Big is my favourite Florence album and when I officially became a stan.

Cute and nice song. But I guess it's not 1st official single... or am I wrong?

I don't like it either and I'm not surprised. She lost me with How Big... I loved Lungs and Ceremonials was good too, but How Big... ended up beig such an annoying record for me where she decided to become a howling banshee. I'm not here for her screams over sounds that barely qualify as music.

Well I loved Ceremonials and the last album was just ok for me, but at least I liked the first songs she released of it.

The new one sounds a bit boring and uneventful, I don't know :(

I don’t understand the hate for this. It’s a beautiful song:

How deeply are you sleeping or are you still awake?
A good friend told me you've been staying out so late
Be careful, oh, my darling, oh, be careful what it takes
From what I've seen so far, the good ones always seem to break
And I was screaming at my father and you were screaming at me
And I can feel your anger from way across the sea
And I was kissing strangers, I was causing such a scene
Oh, the heart it hides such unimaginable things

Grab me by my ankles, I've been flying for too long
I couldn't hide from the thunder in a sky full of song
And I want you so badly but you could be anyone
I couldn't hide from the thunder in a sky full of song

Hold me down, I'm so tired now
Aim your arrow at the sky
Take me down, I'm too tired now
Leave me where I lie

And I can tell that I'm in trouble when that music starts to play
In a city without seasons, it keeps raining in LA
I feel like I'm about to fall, the room begins to sway
And I can hear the sirens but I cannot walk away

Grab me by my ankles, I've been flying for too long
I couldn't hide from the thunder in a sky full of song
And I want you so badly but you could be anyone
I couldn't hide from the thunder in a sky full of song

Hold me down, I'm so tired now
Aim your arrow at the sky
Take me down, I'm too tired now
Leave me where I lie

I thought I was flying but maybe I'm dying tonight

This is so beautiful. Not what I expected, sonically, but it's amazing.

Agreed :)
I think this song is just a first taste of the new era and that she will release a more catchy or instant song as official first single.

I actually like this. it's still a bit too Florence-y for me to truly love it, but I like how understated it is compared to her usual over the top drama in songs

Not really fussed on it. A shame since she has so many songs off her first three albums that slayed me to the core but this one leaves me indifferent

By far not as striking as most of her discography.
