Notes

HOW BIGFor Florence Welch, the success of her first two Florence + the Machine albums Lungs (2009) and Ceremonials (2011) meant five years of back-to-back recording, promoting and touring.
Lungs ran straight into the making, promoting and touring of the Grammy-nominated Ceremonials,an album written while on the road and recorded straight after coming off tour.
The shows were getting bigger, the hair redder, the success wider and wilder.
HOW BLUEA pop star at 21, with two international hit albums behind her, Florence discovered that in giving seven years to her music, some elements of real life had been left by the wayside.
Coming back from tour and moving out of her mother's Camberwell home, Florence re-engaged with normal life: going out, falling in and out of love, and simply trying to learn how to look after herself outside of the hermetic bubble of life of the road.
"It was sort of a crash landing" Florence freely admits, "I guess although I've always dealt in fantasy and metaphor when I came to writing, that meant the songs this time were dealing much more in reality.
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.
Which is frightening because I'm not hiding behind anything but it felt like something I had to do."And so the new Florence, and her songs, started to swim into focus.
HOW BEAUTIFULThe result is How Big How Blue How Beautiful a collection of songs, written and recorded over the course of 2014.
Produced by Markus Dravs (Bjork, Arcade Fire, Coldplay) with contributions from Paul Epworth, Kid Harpoon and John Hill, the third album by Florence + the Machine is live-sounding, tune-rich, unhinged in all the right places and powerful in all the best ways.
In voice and, ultimately, outlook Florence has never sounded better.

Lungs is the debut studio album by English indie rock band Florence and the Machine.
It was released on 3 July 2009 by Island Records.
The album features production from James Ford, Paul Epworth, Stephen Mackey, Eg White and Charlie Hugall, with additional production by band member Isabella Summers.
The album received generally positive reviews from music critics, with Welch drawing comparisons to the likes of Kate Bush and Fiona Apple.
Lungs reached number one on the UK Albums Chart and number 14 on the US Billboard 200, selling over three million copies worldwide.
The album was preceded by three singles: "Kiss with a Fist", "Dog Days Are Over" and "Rabbit Heart", with the latter reaching number 12 on the UK Singles Chart.
Three further singles followed the release of the album, including "You've Got the Love", the group's first top-10 entry.
To promote the album, Florence and the Machine embarked on the Lungs Tour between 2008 and 2011.
