Noth­ing can com­pare to Florence’s voice, and noth­ing at all can com­pare to Florence’s voice live — Coup De Main

High praise in­deed for the lady we first saw grace our shores with an ac­claimed per­for­mance at Laneway in 2010. But wait there’s more.

In a very spe­cial nod to Laneway’s 10th An­niver­sary cel­e­bra­tions, the in­cred­i­ble Florence + The Ma­chine have agreed to make a very spe­cial guest ap­pear­ance at Laneway 2019, a decade af­ter per­form­ing on the first ever Auck­land Laneway in 2010.

A very happy birth­day to Laneway in­deed.

New al­bum High As Hope is as in­ti­mate as it is epic, ven­tur­ing into new sonic ter­ri­tory whilst reach­ing back to Florence’s roots, and, as Florence de­scribes it, “is a pure ex­pres­sion of who I am now, as an artist, and an hon­est one.”

It con­tains the sin­gles Sky Full Of Song, Hunger and Big God.

The UK artist has daz­zled fans and crit­ics and the cu­ri­ous alike across three cel­e­brated stu­dio al­bums; which pro­duced a slew of world­wide hits in­clud­ing You’ve Got The Love, Dog Days Are Over, Shake it Out and Spec­trum (Say My Name), among many oth­ers.

De­spite what the pho­to­graph may in­di­cate, all are unan­i­mous in one thing — you can’t hold a can­dle to Florence.
