Meanwhile, Florence and The Machine have recently released new song 'Wish That You Were Here', which will feature as the title track for Tim Burton's new movie, Miss Peregrine's Home For Peculiar Children.
Praising her time working with the iconic director, she said: "It’s the kind of dark, dark romance of his work—so beautiful and whimsical, but with an element of darkness to it. That’s something that I always try and achieve in my work, too. I knew we would get along really well working together and we did."
