After surprising fans with the release of "Sky Full of Songs," Florence + The Machine has started teasing their next track on their new verified Instagram.
To those who have not heard, the pop-rock band is set to release their next album High As Hope, this year. According to reports, the album will come out by June 29.
This is a follow-up to the massively successful How Big, How Blue, How Beautiful album that was released way back in 2015.
Florence + The Machine started teasing the next single titled "Hunger," on Tuesday, May 1. Their verified official page on Instagram posted a snap of a sculpture still in plastic. The statue is expected to appear in the music video for the upcoming track.
The account also posted photos of the lead singer and lyricist Florence Welch posing with the female statue. The band revealed that the video was directed by Andres Gonzalez Rojas who also directed Jack White's "Sixteen Saltines" and "Days of Kindness" by late music icon Leonard Cohen.
The track and the music video will have a simultaneous release on Thursday, May 3.

Florence + The Machine has not revealed much information about the album. However, its existence was confirmed earlier this year when Spanish blog Binaural revealed that Brett Shaw, who also produced How Big, How Blue, How Beautiful, has been working on the new album for the past year.
Speaking to The Telegraph, Welch revealed that their fourth studio album will explore her downward spiral after she broke up with boyfriend James Nesbitt in 2014.
"I'm happier now, I'm content, but I'm never going to be fixed, ever," she shared via NME. "I don't think that's how it works. A lot of things almost worked for me: partying almost worked, being famous and successful almost worked, the relationship almost worked... but it won't sustain you. These are transient things. It's working out how to be OK regardless."
Florence + The Machine Performances Sold Out
Florence + The Machine also returned this year onstage to perform in several music festivals, including Melt Festival in Germany and Osheaga in Canada, in the coming months. However, fans in the United Kingdom and the United States are out of luck. Welch recently announced on her official Twitter page that tickets to all of their intimate performances have already been sold out.
All our intimate UK and US shows have now sold out. So sorry to everyone who experienced difficulties with the ticketing system crashing, thank you for your patience and we’ll see you soon. xx — florence welch (@flo_tweet) April 27, 2018
