How do you give back to those essential personnel who are working tirelessly to help those affected by COVID-19?
If you’re like most of the musicians out there, you release some new tunes and donate all proceeds from it to COVID-19 funds.
Florence and the Machine are following suit by doing just that.
On Friday (April 17), the United Kingdom act released a new track titled “Light of Love.” As per frontwoman Florence Welch, the four-minute song is a previously unreleased song from 2018’s High as Hope.
“Light of Love’ is an unreleased song from High as Hope, it never made it to the record, but I thought I would release it at midnight tonight, as a little token of my love,” Welch posted on Instagram.
She continues by revealing that she will be donating all proceeds from “Light of Love” to the Intensive Care Society, which provides care for those on the front line, including doctors, nurses, and healthcare professionals.
“I will be donating all of my income from this song to the Intensive Care Society.”
“Light of Love” marks Florence and the Machine’s first new song since the release of High As Hope, though she did record a special version of “Jenny of Oldstone” for the final season Game of Thrones in 2019.
