Florence + the Machine Contributes New Track to Tim Burton Film

in Music News/New Music by

It was announced today that Florence + the Machine contributed a new track entitled “Wish That You Were Here” to Tim Burton’s Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children.

You can listen to the track here: “Wish That You Were Here”.

About the song Florence Welch said, “‘Wish That You Were Here’ is a song about the idea that love is a journey and a risk. Having been on tour, I’ve lived in a sort of magical time bubble, where the days almost blend together. It’s amazing, but it comes at a cost — a cost of leaving the people you love behind for a year or two. You kind of feel like if you could sing a song into the wind, maybe the wind could take it to them in a way that you can’t with a text or a call. You just want to send your love in a different way, in a way to somehow reach the unreachable.”

The song will be available for purchase on Friday August 26th.
