Florence Welch is set to launch her very first book next summer; a collection of lyrics, poetry and art entitled 'Useless Magic'. It's not really an autobiography, but it will definitely give fans an insight into the musician's mind that they have never seen before.

Six months after she won an International Achievement prize at the 2017 Ivor Novello Awards, the 31-year-old Florence and the Machine frontwoman has made yet another lifetime achievement. Her first book is well on the way, and it's safe to say she's thoroughly excited about it. 

'I am so thrilled to be collaborating with Penguin on my first ever book release', Florence said in a statement. 'It is such an honour.'

The book includes lyrics and poetry of Flo's own creation, along with art from her own sketchbooks. It also aims to give readers insight into the things that have inspired and influenced her writing over the years.

'I have long wanted to persuade Florence to write a book, and this will be a beautiful record of her songs, a glimpse of the ideas that have inspired them, and a first look at her poetry', said Fig Tree's Publishing Director Juliet Annan.

Indeed, the literary world has been waiting with bated breath for a Florence Welch to publish something ever since she set up her Between Two Books book club in 2013 via Instagram.

Florence released her last album 'How Big, How Blue, How Beautiful' back in 2015, topping both UK and US album charts. Since then, she has released the non-album single 'Wish That You Were Here' from the soundtrack to Tim Burton's 'Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children', as well as the 'Final Fantasy XV' song 'Stand By Me'.

While her band is not currently on tour, they are scheduled to perform at Germany's Melt Festival in July next year. Meanwhile,
