Florence + the Machine Debuts Creepy “Delilah” Video; Performs in Water on “Ellen”

The clip is the sixth chapter of the band's "The Odyssey" series, which began with their "What Kind of Man" video. Like the previous installments of "The Odyssey," the "Delilah" video is atmospheric, elaborately choreographed and full of existential dread, which manifests itself here as an incredibly creepy goblin character. 

"This was one of the first songs [band member] Isa [Summers] and I wrote for this record while we were at Geejam studios in Jamaica," writes frontwoman Florence Welch of "Delilah." "It's based on a party we had just been to in Miami, the biblical tale of Sampson and Delilah. And the agony of the mobile phone in modern relationships."

In other Florence + the Machine news, the band played their single "Ship to Wreck" on Tuesday's episode of The Ellen Degeneres Show. For the performance, the entire stage was covered in water. You might think that after breaking her foot earlier this year, Welch would want to perform only on the stablest of surfaces, but she took to the watery stage with her traditional gusto. The splash-filled performance is now streaming on YouTube.

Florence + the Machine currently is on tour in support of their latest album, How Big, How Blue, How Beautiful.
