Heavy Date for Florence's Twilight SingleOn 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 and The Twilight Saga: Eclipse, the third installment of The Twilight Saga film series.

On the official website of Florence + the Machine, singer Florence Welch says, “'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."

She continues, "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.”

Since the release of its first single in 2008, it seems The Joy Formidable has been on just about everyone's radar and playlist, and yet this talented band has waited until now to release its first full-length studio album. With three (brief) US tours and a number of European, Australian, and UK tours under its belt, and the scheduled release of The Big Roar in the UK, Europe, and America during the next few months, it is an appropriate time to showcase The Joy Formidable.

“It’s all felt right, and at the right time," Lead vocalist and guitarist Ritzy Bryan told TLOBF.  "We’ve done things a bit topsy-turvy; releasing singles, EPs and live albums before a proper one."

“It’s all about having fun,” Bass guitarist Rhydian Daffyd added. “We’re not influenced or swayed by the business aspect of it. Ultimately what matters to us is putting out releases we’re proud of.”

VPME described The Joy Formidable as "The euphoric aural equivalent of a hand job."
