Florence + the Machine's 'The Odyssey', directed by Vincent Haycock over the past year and a half, has premiered online.
The short film, set in Yucatan (Mexico), Los Angeles (USA), and London (UK), features every song from the standard version of 'How Big, How Blue, How Beautiful', apart from Caught. It includes two acapella connecting clips, some short spoken scenes, and a surprise ending with a special appearance from Rob Ackroyd (the band's guitarist).
The Odyssey contains 9 chapters, symbolising the 9 circles of hell set out by Dante's Divine Comedy:
1 - What Kind of Man
2 - How Big, How Blue, How Beautiful
3 - St Jude
4 - Ship to Wreck
5 - Queen of Peace
6 - Long and Lost
7 - Mother
8 - Delilah
9 - Third Eye
