Florence Welch and her backing band, the Machine, continue the narrative begun in the “What Kind of Man” video released last month in “St. Jude.” Welch, separated from her lover by the metaphorical storm that so often characterizes the relationships in her songs, prays to the patron saint of lost causes to find a way back—to him, to herself, to when they were good.
“St. Jude” is the third track shared from their forthcoming third studio album, How Big How Blue How Beautiful (due out June 2). Along with “What Kind of Man,” Welch has also shared the album’s title track and accompanying video.
