'Heavy In Your Arms' & 'Between Two Lungs'
Fri 24 Sep, 2010
On November 15th Florence & The Machine will release the single 'Heavy In Your Arms'.
The track is a highlight of both this year's festival season the third installment of the 'Twilight: Eclipse' film.
Here's what Florence has to say:
“Heavy In Your Arms I suppose is about the weight of love, and how sometimes it can be a burden between two people. I felt this was a strong theme in the Twilight series, is someone being rescued or are they being condemned? And is the love you carry bringing you down.
"I recorded it with Paul (Epworth) one evening, using a lot of strange reversed vocal samples and big hip hop piano. It's basically inspired by 90's hip hop, and gospel choirs, like most of my songs.”
