After the accidental iTunes post earlier this week left us knowing a little more about the forthcoming release than we should have, Florence & The Machine have now confirmed the name and release date of their next studio album.
The new full-length 'How Big, How Blue, How Beautiful' will be available from the 1st June through Island Records. The album's title-track was unveiled earlier this week as well, and now the band have shared the record's first official single 'What Kind Of Man', which is available as a free download with every pre-order of the new album.
Produced by Markus Dravs, with additional contributions from Paul Epworth, Kid Harpoon and John Hill, 'How Big, How Blue, How Beautiful' is the group's third studio release and their first since 2012's 'Ceremonials'.
