Late Night FDL: Delilah

Florence + The Machine – Delilah

Ahead of their new album, How Big How Blue How Beautiful, they released another track…

In less than two weeks, Florence and the Machine will return with their much-anticipated new album, How Big How Blue How Beautiful. Already we’ve heard a handful of its tracks, including “What Kind of Man”, “Ship to Wreck”, and “St. Jude”. Now, the UK outfit has offered another preview in “Delilah”.

Frontwoman Florence Welch may still be nursing a broken foot, but her voice is as mighty as ever. Here, Welch goes high and low with ease — a sultry sorceress one minute, a falsetto-blessed nightingale the next.

How Big How Blue How Beautiful arrives on June 2nd through Republic Records.

What’s on your mind tonite…?

    Looking abroad… So while the EU plan for the ‘migrants’ flounders… EU plan for migrant quotas hits rocks after France and Spain object

    They’d much rather sink them at sea… EU to back ‘boat-destroyer’ mission in Mediterranean

    And much more nefariously… European nations unify laws to prevent foreign fighters

    Aloha, dub…! May I ask you to kindly refrain from starting fights in the FDL threads…?

  • karenjj2

    delighted for you all; background you described sounded beautiful; weather cooperative?

  • dubinsky

    you may ask anything that pleases you to ask, my friend.

    perhaps you can go to the thread or threads that you have in mind and leave a comment there so that I might have a clue as to what on earth you’re talking about.

    I didn’t start any fight or intend to start any and

    I certainly am not gonna have such a discussion or even join any fight on a music thread.

    Aloha, CT and all. Tired tonight, but did want to at least let you know I’m lurking. 😉

    Aloha, TW…! I hope all’s well in Dixie…! 😉

  • karenjj2

    re IP/MENA headlines below: we’ve become barbarians: smash countries and the murder the fleeing victims. in contrast, saw on Brandon’s roundup that South American countries have offered refuge.

    Kia Ora? i’ve barely mastered “Aloha” and you throw a new greeting (?) at me. *laughing*

    It is HUMID in Dixie and we’ve only hit the low 80°s. A guy I ran across, who was sweating just as much as I, when I remarked on how humid it was and how hot it felt, replied, “It ain’t Mississippi till it’s August.” Oh, he would bring up AUGUST in MISSISSIPPI! It’s coming . . .

  • http://firedoglake.com/ CTuttle

    Sad how the Europeans refuse to stop creating the migrant problem in the first place, and, then not face up to the obvious consequences…! 8-(

  • TalkingWarrior

    Glad I’m not the only one wondering about Kia Ora. CT, translation please?

  • http://firedoglake.com/ CTuttle

    I remember the sweltering Bayous of Louisiana in August, and I’d thought I was in hell, until I found myself in the middle of the Mojave Desert, in August…! 😉

    *heh* It’s Maori for ‘Hello’…! 😉

    That’s what a friend of mine, who also left NOLA post-Katrina, said about her first summer in Phoenix: “I don’t give a damn about humidity, HOT is HOT!”

    *heh* With the balmy Big Isle just right, TW…! 😉

    And only an airline ticket away …

    This should prove interesting, tho, Bibi doesn’t give a rat’s arse what the UN does and/or thinks…!

    UN says will engage Israel on ‘realistic options’ for talks

    Meanwhile, I question the providence of this attack in Damascus… UN, US condemn Russian embassy attack in Damascus

  • TalkingWarrior

    First it’s onion domes, now it’s Maori. Are we the unwitting participants in some Turing test?

  • dick_c

    Thanks for this. One tune led to another, now I’ve just finished listening to the Florence + the Machine: Live at the Royal Albert Hall video. I guess I’m a new Florence Welch fan.

  • http://firedoglake.com/ CTuttle

    Aloha, dc…! I’ve been a fan of her’s for awhile…! 😉

  • TalkingWarrior

    The spin in that AFP Damascus story – and the hypocrisy of the US and its UN mouthpiece – is breathtaking. We have hurtled so quickly into the next world-wide war, and yet so inevitably, in retrospect.

  • dubinsky

    are you suggesting that the Ukrainians did it?

    not sure what you mean by “providence of it”

    provenance?

  • http://firedoglake.com/ CTuttle

    Either the GCC’s ‘moderate’ goons or the Israelis instigating more mayhem, dub…!

  • TalkingWarrior

    And I thought it might be the Lithuanians.

  • dubinsky

    interesting speculation.

    just a wild guess or is there anything more than animus informing your thought?

  • dubinsky

    the Latvians are the ones who get things done, the Liths are too diffident.

    My bad…! But, Cui Bono? The Russians certainly don’t benefit…!

  • dubinsky
  • dubinsky

    who benefitted from the errant US attack on Chinese property in the mess that was the Serb’s wars with their neighbors?

    sometimes a bloody mess is just a bloody mess

    My eyes are closing on me, CT. Followed a few of your news links, enjoyed the stories, have thoughts, but too tired to tap them out. Thanks for the links, though.

    G’night all.
