Florence Welch to play new songs at Isle of Wight Festival

Florence and the Machine have signalled their intention to play new songs at their summer gigs, including a show at the Isle of Wight Festival.

Singer Florence Welch stated that she is already planning her follow-up to Lungs, which won the Best Album award at February's Brits.

Speaking to the NME, she said: "I've been thinking quite a bit about it. I've been writing quite a lot.

"There are a couple of songs already that I think I'm going to start playing for the Cosmic Love Tour."

Welch also hinted that she may contribute a song to the soundtrack of the upcoming third film in the Twilight series, Eclipse.

Florence and the Machine are set to perform on the Friday night at the Isle of Wight Festival, before rap superstar Jay-Z takes to the stage.

The Strokes and Paul McCartney are the other headliners, with other acts such as Blondie, Biffy Clyro, Vampire Weekend and The Hold Steady also appearing at the festival. ADNFCR-3083-ID-19715657-ADNFCR
