Is Outside Lands the most relevant music festival? Florence and the Machine thought it important enough to introduce its new material.
In one of the most highly anticipated sets of the weekend, Florence + the Machine debuted a brand new live show at this weekend’s Outside Lands in San Francisco. Willo Perron of WP&A creative directed the new show, which received its world premiere during the band’s headlining set Saturday, the highest attended day in the history of the festival. Watch highlights from the show here.
The band will embark on a North American headline tour this fall in celebration of the release of the new album High As Hope, out now on Republic Records—get it here.
The 23-city tour kicks off September 8 in Vancouver and includes two nights at Los Angeles’ Hollywood Bowl and Washington, D.C.’s The Anthem, with further stops at New York’s Barclays Center and in Seattle, Portland, Nashville, Philadelphia, Chicago and more.
High as Hope was co-produced Florence and Emile Haynie and featuring contributions from Kamasi Washington, Sampha, Tobias Jesso Jr, Kelsey Lu, Jamie xx and Thomas Barlett, the album includes “Hunger,” “Big God” and “Sky Full of Song.”
