Florence + The Machine – “What The Water Gave Me” | Music Video

I don’t know about you, but I feel the soul in this. Critically acclaimed British Alternative band Florence + The Machine unveil the official video for their new single “What The Water Gave Me,” from their anticipated as-yet untitled sophomore album; recorded at London’s iconic Abbey Road studios and set for release on November 7, with production by Paul Epworth.

“I wrote so much of my first album at different times and places — some songs when I was 18, some when I was 21 — so there are so many pieces and styles on it,” says singer Florence Welch of their 2009 debut Lungs. “And that’s one of the things I love about it, but for my new record, I wanted to do things differently. It’s why I worked with one producer in one studio. I want to tie all those things together … in one piece, if possible.”

“Welch also said that the album draws inspiration from ethereal sources too, including one song on the album she wrote after a ghostly visitation,” MTV reports.

“‘There’s a song on it that’s inspired by a visit [from] my dead grandmother — like, I had a really, really vivid dream about her and, um, she was giving me advice in this dream,” she said. “And it was really emotional, and I woke up crying. And there’s one song that’s inspired by that experience.'”
