The album was executively produced by Florence Welch herself, along with Emile Haynie.
Florence + the Machine’s fourth studio album, released on June 29th 2018. The album cover and official tracklist were announced along with the release of the album’s lead single, Hunger. Speaking about the album, Florence describes that she aimed for a more positive message for love and life, in contrast to her heartbreak last record How Big, How Blue, How Beautiful. There are a lot of feelings on this record – sadness, anger, joy – but in amongst it, I still have hope". The theme of this album is one in contrast to her previous records: in her past work, Florence describes using her music to fill the voids and fix the damages in her life. Conversely, as described by the Sunday Times, Florence has realised the answers won’t be found in her career and are located in a chain of events, a pattern of behaviour that long predates it.

Florence + the Machine: Hunger – video. The relative lack of clutter reveals something intriguing. Clearly desperate to be the kind of artist who constructs a phantasmagorical world in which listeners might lose themselves, Welch turns out to be really adept at something more earthbound.
High as Hope, like predecessor How Big, How Blue, How Beautiful and the group’s MTV Unplugged stint, is supposed to be Welch’s requisite stripped-down, personal album. Unlike How Big, How Blue, How Beautiful, it actually has a claim. The rafter-shaking anthems still exist, but they’re less often belted but delivered conversationally, like a frank chat with a friend who just happens to chat at top decibel. It’s also a Florence and the Machine album with every song produced with Emile Haynie, which also says it all. Like Jeff Bhasker or Alex da Kid, Haynie has a signature style: enormous ballads made of dusty air, like the dregs of Lana Del Rey’s Born to Die or multiple Eminem ballads. It’s boring as bombast. Some artists can make that work, like FKA twigs, who knows how to work with space, or Kanye West’s Runaway, which is meant to sound empty.
Before, I thought I ran on a chaos engine, Florence Welch told the Guardian in June 2018, shortly ahead of the release of High as Hope. But the more peaceful I am, the more I can give to the work. I can address things I wasn’t capable of doing before. This newfound openness gives her band’s fourth LP an unvarnished vulnerability. Hunger will sit proudly among her most personal and beautiful songs, while South London Forever and Grace both make peace with the excesses that decorated her rise to fame.
