Florence and the Machine has been confirmed as heading Glastonbury’s Pyramid stage on Friday June 26th, after Foo Fighters were force to withdraw from the festival. Dave Grohl’s band made the announcement that they’d be giving up their headlining slot yesterday, due to the frontman fracturing his leg at a concert in Sweden last Friday.

Florence + The Machine Scores First U.S. Number 1 Album

Florence Welch may be recovering from a broken foot, but she’s got even more good news to make her feel better, as the third Florence + The Machine album has entered the American charts at Number One, her first record to reach the summit in the States.

How Big, How Blue, How Beautiful sold 137,000 copies in its first week on sale to debut at the top spot in the Billboard 200 albums chart, according to Nielsen SoundScan. As a result, Florence is one of the few artists who have managed to top the American and British albums charts at the same time – the ninth act to do so in the 2010s and the first since Ed Sheeran’s X last year.

Florence And The Machine - How Big, How Blue, How Beautiful Album Review


If 2011's 'Ceremonials' was the exorcism of Florence Welch, then the 28-year-old's follow up 'How Big, How Blue, How Beautiful' is her break-up album. While that may seem a somewhat fashionable move this year - Bjork and Best Coast have mined a similar vein - Florence utilises her songwriting like therapy here to create an accurate picture of angst, regret and rejection. That may not sound like the most enticing proposition, but stripping away many of the more esoteric references and flourishes of her previous work reveals a far more vulnerable and interesting Florence. Indeed, the album should carry a warning sticker for those who have ever fallen in love with the wrong person. That's how uncomfortably accurate many of the lyrical observations are across these eleven songs 

Florence + The Machine - How Big, How Blue, How Beautiful Review

It's also rare to see four singles unveiled prior to the release of a tent pole album such as this. There's obviously a confidence at the record company that the songs stand up on their own without the wider context of the album itself. Maybe that's because the gravitas of the subject matter may put people off the complete package without an air of familiarity first. However well those tracks have performed they do have more impact here as the cumulative narrative builds a complete picture of Florence's post-relationship mood. Musically, there's also a shift in these songs. There's more guitar and brass, less reliance upon keyboards and big production, giving a more organic and intimate feel that was explored previously during the MTV unplugged show. There are still soaring choruses and call and responses multi-tracked vocals of course, but the track listing and sound of this record doesn't seem interchangeable with Florence + The Machine's previous two efforts. This is certainly a bespoke set of songs that work best as a concept album of sorts.

Lead single 'What Kind Of Man' replicates the darkness of 'Ceremonials' and demonstrates the anger you might expect from a break-up album as Florence's voice drips with venom over a jagged riff. It's lines like "To let me dangle at a cruel angle, my feet don't touch the floor" which cut to the heart of the matter here. But it's not all bitter rejection; as the album moves forward the first glimmers of hope start to shine through. Lines like "I know you're bleeding, but you'll be ok" ('Various Storms & Saints') and the internal conversation that forms the central theme of 'Delilah' demonstrate that there is a continuing narrative to the record. While the latter song relies upon a slightly clichéd idea of a phone call that never comes, the frankness and truth of the sentiment ensure that it avoids a reliance on overly familiar tropes. The most defiant and uplifting moment comes with the catharsis of 'Third Eye' which lyrically and musically re-instates a sense of confidence following a number of quieter and more contemplative songs.

His name will be doubtlessly familiar to those fans of the rap world, having began his career in hip hop, but now he's set to make waves as a songwriter, enlisting some of the greatest vocalists and performers to work with him on his first release; an impressive feat for someone who started out working in a home studio in New York before dropping out of school. Luckily, it wasn't long before his work was picked up by Proof from D-12, who introduced him to Eminem, and the rest is history. He won a Grammy after producing Eminem's album 'Recovery', went on to discover Kid Cudi and worked with some of the world's greatest rappers including Ghostface Killah, Raekwon, Ice Cube and Snoop Dogg to name but a few.

Adele Working On 'Edgy' New Album With Arctic Monkeys Producer


Adele Kid Harpoon Florence Welch Arctic Monkeys Jessie Ware

Adele is finally starting work on her third studio album, making every effort to follow her worldwide number 1 hit '21' with a new 'edgy' record.

The 'Rolling in the Deep' singer is certainly rolling in the millions at the moment with her impressive vocals earning her numerous Grammys, BRITS, a Golden Globe and an Oscar and it doesn't look like her career is going downhill anytime soon. She is set to work with two of the best names in the British music business James Ford and Kid Harpoon who have previously worked with some of Britain's favourite modern artists Florence Welch, Arctic Monkeys and Jessie Ware. "Adele wants to move with the times and is trying to make her new record sound as edgy as possible," a source told The Sun. "The team she's assembled is first rate and she's confident they can help match the success of her first two albums."

It wouldn't be overly confident to suggest that her next album will sell millions in its opening sales as it will probably be one of the most highly anticipated albums of the year on its release. We're guessing it won't be a tear-jerker like '21' either, what with Adele achieving some serious milestones in the last year both musically and personally as she is now a mother to a baby boy with her boyfriend, not to mention becoming filthy rich within two albums.
