The dance-filled baroque pop record is the band’s first full-length body of work in nearly four years, a follow-up to 2018’s more understated High As Hope, and was preceded by lead single “King,” “Heaven Is Here,” “My Love,” and “Free” — each of which came with a striking music video directed by Autumn de Wilde.
Other collaborators on the album include Jack Antonoff, who co-wrote six of its 14 tracks and helped produce both “King” and “Free, Dave Bayley of Glass Animals, British singer Kid Harpoon, and American pianist/producer Doveman.
In her official review for Consequence, critic Ilana Kaplan calls Dance Fever “a natural evolution from 2015’s How Big, How Blue, How Beautiful and 2018’s High As Hope,” on which bewitching frontwoman Florence Welch “taps into her power, ribbing the persona she created, tackling the darkness and finding power in redemption.”
