‘Heaven is Here’
“Every song I ever wrote became an escape rope tied around my neck to pull me up to heaven”
Florence + the Machine shares new song ‘Heaven is Here’.
Written in spite of lockdown one, Florence channeled her frustrations at being creatively chastised into this immediately arresting, 2 minutes 8 seconds of powerful choral chant set to primal drums and vocal percussion.
The Autumn de Wilde directed video shows a cast of dancers led in possesed procession by Florence. Choreographed by Ryan Heffington with chilling precision to bring the music to life, the short burst of bewitching, other-worldly energy – audibly and visually – takes your breath away.
Joy, grief, breath, the body, movement, the soul, power, rage, powerlessness, spirituality and escapism are all at play in this flash of pure brilliance.
