From Florence Welch, aka Florence And The Machine, and her yet untitled sophomore album due out this November 7th, we have the very brand new first song entitled “What The Water Gave Me”. It takes its spirit from a Frida Kahlo painting and the notorious death of Virginia Wolf, who walked into a river in a coat full of stones. I pretty much want this song all over me.
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.
