Florence & The Machine have unveiled the David LaChapelle directed video for 'Spectrum'.

This is, of course, David LaChapelle's first music video in five years. Two quotes:

"It's a beautiful song that really touched me and inspired me to create imagery that matches its power. ‘Spectrum’ is free of scepticism, irony, and the coldness one finds in a lot of contemporary popular music. It's the opposite – full of light, positivity and authentic joy. I hope that I can do justice to this moving modern classic." - David LaChapelle

“It was a complete dream to work with David LaChapelle. I collected his books as a teenager, and I fantasised that he would direct the video for 'Spectrum' from the moment the song was written. I still cant believe it actually happened, and I'm completely overjoyed that he felt such a connection with the song.” - Florence Welch

‘Spectrum’ / ’Breaking Down’ is set to be released on July 8th.
