  • It's been four years since Florence + the Machine released the brilliant Ceremonials. Today, Florence unveiled a new single and video called "How Big, How Blue, How Beautiful."

Sadly, there's no official news of a new album, but this is definitely a step in the right direction. [Stereogum]

  • Indie dance duo Matt and Kim will drop their latest studio album, New Glow, on April 7. They've shared "Hey Now," an adorable bluesy number that is accompanied by an even cuter video. Also, I really applaud Kim's fearless dance skills. [CoS]
