Florence and the Machine have brightened up a dark moment with the release of their new song ‘Light of Love’ which you can hear in full below.
The track was originally recorded as part of the sessions for 2018’s High As Hope but it didn’t make the final edit. The singer shared the track via her Instagram.
When sharing the new song ‘Light of Love’, Welch said on her Instagram account, “I thought I would release it at midnight tonight, as a little token of my love. I love and miss you all so much. With you in spirit from South London lockdown.”
The single also has a charitable angle too. The proceeds from the song will go towards the Intensive Care Society which helps doctors, nurses, and other healthcare professionals who are working on the frontline of the outbreak.
The song was also referenced in Don’t Go Blindly Into the Dark, a 2019 illustrated book from Vincent Haycock. Haycock has also directed a number of Florence and the Machine videos over recent years. The title of the book was a reference to lyrics from ‘Light of Love’.
