Produced by James Ford, “Moderation” is another driving force of nature that sees Florence’s new-found confidence ride high when it comes to love and relationships.
In contrast, “Moderation” is backed by the more delicate “Haunted House.” Produced by Matthew Daniel Siskin (Gambles), it’s an open and exposing song that captures Florence’s more intimate vocal style.
Following a history-making North American tour last year, Florence returns this spring for a headlining set at Governors Ball in New York. Tickets are available here.
“Moderation” and “Haunted House” marks the first new music from Florence + the Machine since their massively acclaimed 2018 album High as Hope, nominated for the Mercury Prize and named one of the best of the year by Rolling Stone, Refinery 29, Billboard, the New York Post, Uproxx and many more.
Critical praise for High as Hope:
“This time around, her voice is stronger than ever.”—The New York Times
“High As Hope preserves Florence’s big, torrential melodrama, but it feels less like a storm than the soft light breaking in afterward amid the sober awe of a new day…Her solitude proffers a source of power, a confidence in her ability to express herself on her own.”—NPR
“The ethereal Florence Welch is still spine-chilling in an eccentric new bundle of distinctly anthemic tracks that will have you, too, cooing haikus up to the sky.”—Entertainment Weekly
“The most rewarding Florence and the Machine full-length yet…Florence Welch possesses a supernatural voice—the kind that can summon long-buried ghosts, and then obliterate them fully with a gale-force roar.”—SPIN
“Intent upon inspiring listeners to dare to dream and to fight through the crushing gravity of the times, to love and cherish each other.”—New York Magazine’s Vulture
