Hurricane Drunk (3:13)

Cover of Lungs

From Lungs and 8 other releases

This song with gospel-influenced layers of sound is about the emotions that you feel when you have been heartbroken. This song, like many on Lungs, was written while Florence Welch the front woman and main person of Florence and the Machine, was getting over breaking up with her boyfriend – it was the first time that her heart had ever been broken. However once the record was completed, Welch found herself back in love with the same man. She told The Independent June 27, 2009, “it’s difficult, because half the album is about breaking up with him!”

Welch tweeted about the song’s promo: “Shooting video today, with blue skinned shangri la ladies, a Viking, A gospel choir, I’m dressed as a kabuki monk… All in a days work really…x”
