Florence + the Machine Debut Song “Heaven is Here”

Florence + the Machine has debuted a new song today, "Heaven is Here", alongside a video (watch below) by acclaimed director Autumn de Wilde and choreographed by Ryan Heffington.

Welch highlighted in an Instagram post (see below) that two of the dancers in the video are "currently sheltering" amidst Russia’s ongoing invasion of Ukraine. The English singer-songwriter wrote: "To my brave and beautiful sisters Marine and Nastia — I love you. I wish I could put my arms around you."

""Heaven is Here" was the first song I wrote in lockdown after an extended period of not being able to get to the studio," said Welch. "I wanted to make something monstrous. And this clamour of joy, fury and grief was the first thing that came out. With dance studios also shut it was my dream to one day create choreography with it. So it’s one of the first pieces of music I have made specifically with contemporary dance in mind."

Welch can be heard speaking on the new track: "And every song I wrote / Became an escape rope / Tied around my neck / To pull me up to heaven."

Florence and the Machine's most recent LP, High as Hope, was released in 2018.
