Florence + The Machine and their epic sound are back in Barcelona to present their fourth album, ‘High as Hope’ (2018), the majority of which was written composed and recorded by Florence Welch herself, and finished up in Los Angeles along with producer Emilie Haynie. This album also features collaborations with Jamie xx, Kamasi Washington, Sampha, Tobias Tess Jr. and Kelsey Lu. This time around you’ll see a more transparent Florence, singing unreservedly about her fears. Tonight at Palau Sant Jordi.
La Musa ens porta aquesta semana una musa ben especial. Una veritable musa de la música d’aquest segle XXI.
Set anys després de la seva primera i última visita, Florence + The Machine i la seva èpica tornen a Barcelona per presentar en directe al Palau Sant Jordi el seu tercer àlbum ‘How big, how blue, how beautiful’ (2016), disc produït per Markus Dravs (Björk, Arcade Fire, Coldplay ) nominat al Premi Mercury i als Grammy en el seu present edició en diverses categories que sona a directe, és ric en melodies i està liderat com sempre per la poderosa veu de la seva carismàtica líder Florence Welch, que farà també un repàs de grans temes de la seva discografia com ‘Dog days are over’, ‘You’ve got the love’ o ‘Cosmic love’.
Florence + The Machine will headline at FIB 2015, an exclusive show in Spain and a chance to see this amazing artist at the height of her powers.
The intensity that Florence Welch exudes isn’t a result of chance. She writes her songs looking to draw you in until you’re left floating, wrapped up in their music and lyrics.
That’s why they say her music is a type of magic that carries you to new and distant places; places filled by hypnotic melodies, rich in excitement.
Her debut record, the widely-acclaimed “Lungs” led to her winning the Critics’ Choice and Best British Album awards at the Brits in 2009 and 2010. However the singer and composer from Camberwell, far from being content with that, kept on moving forwards releasing the outstanding “Ceremonials “(2011) that further confirmed a reputation that will soon continue to grow with new songs and an eagerly anticipated new album in 2015. Hopefully we’ll be hearing some of these at full volume today at FIB.
