A new Florence and the Machine album has been on the cards for some time - Florence Welch has been confirmed for a string of festivals, with the follow-up to 2011’s ‘Ceremonials’ imminent.
Last night, a banner advertising the new album on UK iTunes appeared online before being promptly deleted, suggesting a big announcement is due in the next couple of days.
Within the banner, it confirmed a new single title (‘What Kind of Man’) and the new LP art.
This summer, Florence and the Machine play the following festivals:
12-19 Indio, CA, Coachella Music Festival
05-07 New York, Governors Ball Music Festival
11-14 Manchester, TN, Bonnaroo Music Festival
19-21 Scheeßel and Neuhausen ob Eck, Hurricane and Southside Festivals

Meanwhile, as NME reports, the band played an intimate East London show at Trois Garcons, Shoreditch. Playing to friends and family on 9th February, Florence and co. ran through the new album in full. Track titles include ‘Ship to Wreck’, ‘Delilah’ and ‘Caught’. That's her with Jessie Ware at the launch, below.
