Florence + The Machine - What The Water Gave Me

With the release of their debut album in 2009, Florence + The Machine surged onto playlists across the globe.  "Dog Days Are Over" became the hit song that everyone knew, "Oooh, that harp!".  Lungs as a full record was covered in orchestral arrangements, pounding drums, and most notably, Florence Welch's soaring vocals.  As a new name on the music scene, Florence had made her mark.

Now, to prep for the release of album number two, the band has unveiled a new single.  "What The Water Gave Me" still has the Florence sound that you've grown to love.  However, a sense of maturity is found when compared to older singles, such as "Kiss With A Fist".  The chorus is stadium sized with a choir-like howl and the buildup is amazing.  "What The Water Gave Me" is an exciting preview of the currently untitled follow-up to Lungs, which has a release date of November seventh in the UK.

You can watch the music video for "What The Water Gave Me" below.  If you would like to download the single, you can do so here.
