Florence and the Machine has released audio for 'Ship to Wreck', the latest single from their upcoming album 'How Big, How Blue, How Beautiful'.

It has been a whopping four years since the band released their second album, Ceremonials, and their latest album will release on May 29th.

'Ship to Wreck' releases a week earlier on May 22.  Check out the audio below and we'll bring you the video when it's released next week.

Speaking about the meaning behind the single, Florence said, "I was thinking about my own self-destructive side, and how you can make something only to tear it down, enjoy/destroy, create/devastate etc. When you're in that whirlwind, you often end up breaking the thing you love the most."

Florence and The Machine will headline the 2015 Electric Picnic festival which runs from September 4 to 6.  It will be the biggest festival yet with 47,000 revellers.
