Listen: Florence And The Machine - Wish That You Were Here

Florence + The Machine have unveiled their yearning track 'Wish You Were Here', which was penned for the upcoming Tim Burton film Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children. In a press release the songstress described Burton as a kindred spirit and drew parallels between the dark romanticism of both of their work, saying: "I feel like we’re coming from a similar place of quite frantic imaginations trying to get the words out before the pictures in our heads disappear". Florence also elaborated on her wider influence for the track...


“‘Wish That You Were Here’ is a song about the idea that love is a journey and a risk. Having been on tour, I’ve lived in a sort of magical time bubble, where the days almost blend together. It’s amazing, but it comes at a cost — a cost of leaving the people you love behind for a year or two. You kind of feel like if you could sing a song into the wind, maybe the wind could take it to them in a way that you can’t with a text or a call. You just want to send your love in a different way, in a way to somehow reach the unreachable."
