È uscita oggi Sky Full Of Song, la nuova canzone di Florence + The Machine per il Record Store Day!

Accompagnato da un video in bianco e nero diretto da A.G. Rojas (stretto collaboratore di Vincent Haycock), il singolo sarà stampato in una speciale edizione limitata in vinile (trasparente con dettagli bianchi) disponibile da sabato 21 aprile nei negozi di dischi aderenti al Record Store Day (clicca qui per trovare il negozio più vicino a te). Sul lato B New York Poem (for Polly), una poesia estratta dal primo libro di Florence, Useless Magic, in uscita il 5 luglio (pre-order qui). Sky Full Of Song non è quindi il primo singolo del quarto album, secondo alcune voci intitolato High As Hope e in uscita il prossimo 29 giugno.

 

Florence ha presentato la canzone così:

È una canzone che è piovuta dal cielo già formata. A volte quando sei sul palco vai così in alto che diventa difficile capire come tornare giù. C’è questa sensazione di sentirsi squarciati, di correre senza fine verso l’esterno e verso l’interno, e vuoi che qualcuno ti tenga ferma e ti riporti indietro a te stessa. È una sensazione incredibile, celestiale ma in qualche modo anche di solitudine.

 

TESTO DI SKY FULL OF SONG

How deeply are you sleeping or are you still awake?
A good friend told me you’ve been staying out so late
Be careful, oh, my darling, oh, be careful what it takes
From what I’ve seen so far, the good ones always seem to break
And I was screaming at my father and you were screaming at me
And I can feel your anger from way across the sea
And I was kissing strangers, I was causing such a scene
Oh, the heart it hides such unimaginable things

Grab me by my ankles, I’ve been flying for too long
I couldn’t hide from the thunder in a sky full of song
And I want you so badly but you could be anyone
I couldn’t hide from the thunder in a sky full of song

Hold me down, I’m so tired now
Aim your arrow at the sky
Take me down, I’m too tired now
Leave me where I lie

And I can tell that I’m in trouble when that music starts to play
In a city without seasons, it keeps raining in LA
I feel like I’m about to fall, the room begins to sway
And I can hear the sirens but I cannot walk away

Grab me by my ankles, I’ve been flying for too long
I couldn’t hide from the thunder in a sky full of song
And I want you so badly but you could be anyone
I couldn’t hide from the thunder in a sky full of song

Hold me down, I’m so tired now
Aim your arrow at the sky
Take me down, I’m too tired now
Leave me where I lie

I thought I was flying but maybe I’m dying tonight
I thought I was flying but maybe I’m dying tonight
And I thought I was flying but maybe I’m dying tonight
And I thought I was flying but maybe I’m dying tonight

Hold me down, I’m so tired now
Aim your arrow at the sky (shoot, shoot, shoot)
Take me down, I’m too tired now
Leave me where I lie (Fire)

Hold me down, I’m too tired now
Aim your arrow at the sky (shoot, shoot, shoot)
And take me down, I’m too tired now
Leave me where I lie (Fire)
