For the first time since their epic sold out November 2015 tour, Florence Welch and her band return to unleash their mesmerising live show on New Zealand audiences. “Florence and the Machine’s performance was a relentless buzz of energy, music and fun, which had the sold-out crowd screaming, singing and going nuts all night”, the NZ Herald announced of their most recent New Zealand show.

Released globally earlier this week, Florence + The Machine release a third single titled Big God from highly anticipated fourth album, High As Hope, out on June 29th. According to Paste Magazine, “if Welch’s ethereal vocals made her sound like a goddess on previous tracks, she’s a distinctly grounded one on Big GodBig God is sparser, but gorgeously so."

High As Hope is expected to be as intimate as it is epic, venturing into new sonic territory whilst reaching back to Welch’s roots. The new album will feature collaborations from the likes of Kamasi Washington, Sampha, Tobias Jesso Jr, Kelsey Lu and Jamie xx.

High As Hope is a pure expression of who I am now, as an artist, and an honest one - Florence Welch. The UK artist has dazzled fans and critics alike across three celebrated studio albums; Lungs (2009), Ceremonials (2011) and How Big, How Blue, How Beautiful (2015), which produced a slew of worldwide hits including, You’ve Got The Love, Dog Days Are Over, Shake It Out and Spectrum (Say My Name) among many others.

Don’t miss out when Florence + The Machine return in January 2019 to play fan favourites and debut songs from High As Hope in New Zealand for the very first time.
