Florence and the Machine Release Video for New Song ‘King’

    Florence and the Machine have returned with a new single called ‘King’. The track is out today alongside an accompanying video from Autumn de Wilde, who directed 2020’s Emma. Check it out below.

    “As an artist, I never actually thought about my gender that much,” Florence Welch said of the new song in a statement. “I just got on with it. I was as good as the men and I just went out there and matched them every time. But now, thinking about being a woman in my thirties and the future, I suddenly feel this tearing of my identity and my desires. That to be a performer, but also to want a family might not be as simple for me as it is for my male counterparts. I had modeled myself almost exclusively on male performers, and for the first time I felt a wall come down between me and my idols as I have to make decisions they did not.”
