This was a song that just fell out of the sky fully formed. Sometimes when you are performing you get so high, it’s hard to know how to come down. There is this feeling of being cracked open, rushing endlessly outwards and upwards, and wanting somebody to hold you still, bring you back to yourself. It’s an incredible, celestial, but somehow lonely feeling.” –Florence Welch
The Record Store Day clear, white-splatterd vnyl 7″ release of ‘Sky Full Of Song’ will be backed by a recording of ‘New York Ooem (for Polly)’, taken from ‘Useless Magic’: a collection of lyrics, artwork and poetry which will form Florence’s first book, and offers a unique, personal insight into her creative process. ‘Useless Magic’ will be released on July 5th via Fig Tree / Penguin.
