I guess although Iíve 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...

Our interview with Florence + The Machine can be found here.
From the InterviewI like writing songs that feel like they could have been written at any point in time, but then itís good to mix up mundane with the big stuff. Iím obsessed with the idea that just to sing something is to give something reverence. To me, itís not the typical idea of what is revered or what is sacred. To sing about something completely mundane, you give it this power... You can make a shrine of anything.
