Florence Welch is taking her Machine out on tour again, hitting the Metro Radio Arena in Newcastle on March 16. But this time, the UK chart-topper tells Andy Welch, there’ll be no more rock ’n’ roll antics – it’s all about the music


Amid the deliveries, collections and heavy traffic of a west London industrial estate, something very exciting is happening. While one particular unit’s exterior is just as bland as all the others, its insides contain more colour and drama than any of the passing couriers could possibly imagine.

“We’re testing out giant video screens and projectors,” beams Florence Welch. Her Machine, this time around, consists of a guitarist, bass player, drummer, long-time collaborator Isabella Summers on keyboards, a harpist and an assortment of backing singers. They’re more like a gang than a band.

[Verse 1]

I'm gonna be released from behind these lights,
I don't care whether I leave or die,
And I'm loosing blood,
I'm gonna leave my bones,
And I don't want your heart,
It leaves me cold,
I don't want your future I don't need you past,
One brand moment is all I ask.

[Chorus]

I'm gonna leave my body,
(Moving up to higher ground)
I'm gonna loose my mind,
(The mystery keeps pulling me down)
Said I'm gonna leave my body,
(Moving up to higher ground)
I'm gonna lose my mind,
(The mystery keeps pulling me, and pulling me down)

[Verse 2]

I don't need a husband I don't need no wife,
And I don't need the dead or need the life,
And I don't need the birds let them fly away,
And I don't want the clouds never seem to stay,
I don't want your future I don't need your past,
One bright moment is all I ask,
I don't want your future I don't need your past,

[Verse 1]

And the heart is hard to translate,
It has a language of it's own,
It talks in tongues and quiet sighs and prayers and proclamations,
In the grand days of great men and the smallest of gestures,
In short shallow gasps,
But with all my education,
I can’t seem to commend it,
And the words are all escaping me,
And coming back all damaged,
And I would put them back in poetry,
If I only knew how,
I can’t seem to understand it.

[Chorus]

And I would give all this and heaven too,
I would give it all if only for a moment,
That I could just understand the meaning of the word you see,
Cause I’ve been scrawling it forever,
But it never makes sense to me at all.

[Verse 2]

And it talks to me in tiptoes,
And sings to me inside,
It cries out in the darkest night,
And breaks in morning light.
But with all my education,
