The commanding voice; the spellbinding lyrics; the mesmerising stage presence – Florence + The Machine are back with their third studio album, How Big How Blue How Beautiful, and it’s exactly what you’d hope for.

Four years on from the last album, Ceremonials, the upcoming offering sees the band underline a total turn-around in terms of subject matter.

Florence confesses, ‘Ceremonials was so fixated on death and water, and the idea of escape or transcendence through death, but the new album became about trying to learn how live, and how to love in the world rather than trying to escape from it.’

What Kind Of Man - the first single to be released, and indeed, the first music video - is melancholic, yet soaring, and defiant. Watch it below.

How Big How Blue How Beautiful is out 1 June.
