Florence + the Machine to tour the U.S. this Fall

We knew it had to come. Florence + the Machine were simply terrific at Coachella earlier this spring, and I can't wait to see Florence Welch & company return to Southern California to perform a full-length concert set. I've been listening to the new album 'How Big How Blue How Beautiful' since the beginning of the week and it is incredible. Here is the media release on the forthcoming tour...

How Big How Blue How Beautiful is out now, reaching #1 on iTunes in 18 countries worldwide including the U.S., U.K., Canada, Australia, Belgium, Finland, Ireland, New Zealand, Norway, Sweden and more.

The new album How Big How Blue How Beautiful is a collection of songs, written and recorded over the course of 2014. Produced by Markus Dravs (Bj√∂rk, Arcade Fire, Coldplay) with contributions from Paul Epworth, Kid Harpoon and John Hill, the third album by Florence + The Machine is live-sounding, tune-rich, unhinged in all the right places and powerful in all the best ways. In voice and, ultimately, outlook Florence has never sounded better. Order the album HERE.
