Florence + The Machine have posted a new song on the internet.

Florence + The Machine have posted a new song on the internet today and not just a video of frontwoman Florence Welch cycling in a flowery frock as had been widely speculated.

Yesterday, Florence + her Twitter Machine teased, “Hello interworld, I’m out of the studio and into the sunshine! Pop over to my website at 5pm tomorrow for a peek at something very special x”

The unveiled track is a big spooky, haunting amazo-ballad entitled ‘What the Water Gave Me’ and it will appear alongside 11 other tracks on her follow-up to ‘Lungs’ when it is released in November.

The song is reportedly inspired by this painting by Mexican artist Frida Kahlo and it visually sums up the song nicely – all ghostly and otherworldly and bit mental. Flo told NME “At lot of the time when I’m writing, things will just appear. I was writing the song and this book on symbolism was lying around, and it had the painting in it. It’s nice to mix the ordinary with extraordinary.”

The track is available now via the currently crashed FlorenceAndTheMachine.net. Until then, you can have a listen to it here.
