Florence and the Machine producer talks second album

Florence and the Machine producer, Paul Epworth has taken to Twitter to update fans on the follow-up to Florence and the Machine's debut album, 'Lungs'.

Epworth revealed the songs for the new album were complete and are currently with the record label who are deciding what will be included on the new LP. 

He said that they might have a hard time of it, as there are “no weak” tracks:

"Had a week of wonderful mixes coming in for Florence 2. I love handing something over to hear it come back better. I feel for the a&r dept having to try and whittle these tracks down to 10 or 12 because there really are no weak ones."

He added: "It's a weird record that sounds live in ways and like a machine in others, with sensitivity and power from both the music and Flo's voice"

Back in June, Epworth spoke with BBC 6Music about the album, which he was working on with Florence Welch in London's Abbey Road Studios.

He said: "It's going to be more stripped down, but it's heavy, rhythmically. It's a much heavier record than the first album."

Epworth added that he thinks Welch is moving beyond her indie roots into a different territory. He said: "It's a lot less indie and lot more soulful."
