Florence and the Machine reveal album details
Florence Welch is heading back to the studio in October.
The Florence and the Machine star has started listening to an "eclectic mix" of different artists in preparation to start recording the follow-up LP to 2009's critically-acclaimed debut 'Lungs'.
She explained: "I'm definitely going to work with a couple of new people. I'm hoping I'll have some time off in September and then in October or November time I'll start really concentrating on doing the full thing.
"I always listen to Tom Waits, Crystal Castles and this guy called Chad VanGaalen and then weird French new rave stuff. It's quite an eclectic mix and I'm not sure how it's going to come across in the new album. It kind of sinks in subliminally I think."
The singer admitted she often finds her thoughts difficult to transfer to her songwriting, but she confirmed the second album will feature much less "blood and guts" than 'Lungs'
She added to BBC 6 Music: "I'm quite easily distracted and my thoughts are hard to pin down, but it's good in some ways. I think it was like lyrically we're moving away from the blood and guts of the first album.
"The first one was animal and anatomical and this one is chemical and elemental but my thought process changes so quickly from one song to the other so I can never say what the whole theme of the album is going to be."Posted on 16 Aug 2010 07:00 to category : Music News
