Just wondering what people are thinking of the new song? Are there any Florence fans on the DD Forum?

I think this song is brilliant, its builds itself up - think it'll be great at concerts/festivals! So glad she is back :)

Love it, I liked her first album but I hope this one will be even better :)

"What The Water Gave Me" - The story behind 'Florence and The Machine' new single...
  • Florence Welch mentioned in an interview that the lyrics were inspired by author Virginia Woolf’s odd choice of suicide method, in case you’re not familiar with how she chose her death, you might be interested to find out that she drowned herself in a river by putting rocks in her pockets…

Hence the Chorus:



"Let the only sound
Be the overflow
Pockets full of stones
"

Florence has an incredible voice! It amazes me how softly spoken she is and then belts out her songs. I don't know about this one though I think it will definitely grow on me but after the first listen I wasn't all that impressed but I've listened to it a few times since then. Warming up to it.

Shower me with confetti rain, down from open skies.

Wasn't impressed with it on first listen but it's grown on me. Still not a patch on Dog Days Are Over though, which is her best song IMO. Florence's voice is really magical on this track.

LOVE ThE WHOLE ALBUM (Ceremonials)
addicted to it, already saved my life once (What The Water Gave Me)...and it's just so well put together and well structured.


(Considering it came together in 5 WEEKS)

Love it! I really like all her music :)

Obviously as someone already pointed out this song isn't as 'big' as songs such as Dog days are over and You've got the love, but its definitely very mystical, and the lyrics are very powerful.
In six thousand years what will this mean, words from the heart or a melody?

Seven Devils has some smart piano work which is creepy at the same time.
Lover to Lover is just cheeky
Girl With One Eye is an amazing revenge song
Remain Nameless has the most awesome bass riff

I absolutely ADORE Florence. She is such an incredible singer/song writer and so unique. I think her album is the best release of this year. If you haven't heard it, check out her collaboration with Calvin Harris for Spectrum (Say My Name).

Apparently she'll be trying for a year break after this tour.
I do not believe she has the artistic self control to take such a long break. 6 months TOPS!
She's a do a creative thing a day or die type of person. <3

^ I adore What The Water Gave Me So Much, might be my fav Flo song! I also love Shake It Out, Seven Devils, Only If For A Night, Lover to Lover, No Light No Light, Leave My Body

What do you guys think about that current Spectrum dance remix that's floating around? It's kinda annoying imo lol

THAT is my entire list of jams off this album, Lover To Lover and Seven Devils OWN MY LIFE, are just so FUN!

I like the remix, I prefer the album version, but I don't think the remix ruins the originals greatness.

You know what I find a true testimony to Florence's skill/the music's magic is that like, Never Let Me Go has been on the radio for like, 5 months non stop and I still like, cry whenever it comes on, and it was used on a promotional thing for like, heaps of things, but it still hasn't lost it's amazingness!
