Florence Welch announces debut book release
Florence Welch — aka leading lady of Florence and the Machine — has been one of my favorites for a long, long time. But she earned my life-long respect when I saw her live for the second time this summer. It was the morning after the horrific Orlando shooting, and Florence had the entire audience hold a moment of silence. In a venue of over 30, people, the silence was Earth-shattering, and Florence continued to play tribute to the victims of that massacre throughout the show. Florence, for those who may not know, is a mega book lover.

Florence + The Machine - Shake It Out
Anyone that has ever heard the soul-stirring vocals of Florence Welch knows that her songs are piercing like a dove impaled on a rose. Already gorgeously bound like a fairytale compendium of days gone by, leave it to Gucci to improve upon perfection with their own newly released redesign of Useless Magic 's cover. Wrapping the book in a floral wallpaper and embossing a new illustration and text in gold foil, Gucci elevates the design to a new level of luxe. Welch celebrated the launch of the new edition at Gucci's Wooster Bookstore with a poetry reading. Sharing passages from the book, as well as some of her favorite works by other poets before the night moved on to an intimate dinner. Somehow I don't know how we're not related, like our tastes are so similar," Welch said about working with Gucci creative director Alessandro Michele.
With three consecutive number one albums and a possible fourth on the horizon at time of writing plus a headline performance at Glastonbury cementing her mega-star status, now is the time for Florence Welch to publish a souvenir book for fans. Chronologically collating her lyrics, sketches and scribblings from her never-before-seen scrapbooks, favourite artwork, photographs and her poetry, Useless Magic is a treasure. Interviews have dealt frankly with her giving up alcohol and partying in favour of nights in front of the TV. Her latest album High as Hope sees the year-old embracing newfound tranquillity, toning down — for the most part — the bellowing vocals, and turning the lyrics inward. As proof, her latest album High as Hope sees the year-old embracing newfound tranquillity, toning down — for the most part — the bellowing vocals, and turning the lyrics inward. Presenting the lyrics as poetry asks the reader to dwell and pick through each line. When lyrics exist only as vocals, fans have a certain ownership, interpreting them however they might mishear them; when placed on the page in the form of poetry, they become unequivocal and raw.
