Per Ole Hagen/Redferns

All hail the return of Florence + the Machine.

After a cryptic tease earlier this week, Florence Welch and company have premiered a new song called “King.” The track, which finds Welch singing, “I am no mother/I am no bride/I am king,” is available now via digital outlets, and is streaming alongside an accompanying video now on YouTube.

“King” is the first new song from Florence since last year’s “Call Me Cruella,” which was recorded for the 2021 Disney film Cruella. The band’s most recent album is 2018’s High as Hope, which features the single “Hunger.”

Meanwhile, Welch is writing original music and lyrics for an upcoming The Great Gatsby musical.
