It’s now been four years since Florence + The Machine released Ceremonials, and while it’s hard to tell from this video, it doesn’t seem like much has changed since then.

No details have been announced– the album was briefly available for pre-order on iTunes– so check back for additional information as it becomes available.
Also listen to: “Shake it Out”, “Dog Days Are Over”, “You’ve Got the Love”, “Never Let Me Go”, “Only If for a Night”, “Breaking Down”
