How Big, How Blue, How Beautiful”, debuted at #1 on the ARIA Album chart on release and has already reached gold accreditation one month later. Welch, previously took out the top spot with her critically acclaimed second album ‘Ceremonials’. For Florence Welch, the success of her first two Florence + the Machine albums Lungs (2009 – Album of the year, Brit Awards 2010) and Ceremonials (2011) meant five years of back-to-back recording, promoting and touring.

Current single Ship To Wreck was written with Kid Harpoon, the London-based songwriter/producer with whom she’d written Ceremonials’ Grammy-nominated Shake It Out, during a month-long creative furlough in Los Angeles that also yielded first single What Kind Of Man: a full-force ear-pinning anthem of uplifting defiance.
