Florence & The Machine have returned with a new video from their sprawling Ceremonials album – a track called "Never Let me Go".

The clip finds frontwoman Florence Welch embracing the goth on the floor of an ice rink, in a ballad narrative that ends with quite the twist. M. Night Shyamalan, eat your disappointing little heart out:

Addressing the soulful sound architecture of her music, Florence said, "The gospel thing comes from my obsession with hymns. I'm drawn to anything that has a hymnal quality, be it Spiritualized or dusty old albums by Georgian choirs." 

Additionally, Florence and The Machine are prepping an unplugged album which was taken from their taping session for MTV's "Unplugged" set. Look for that set on April 10. With new music already in the works as well, Florence can't wait to return to the recording booth. "I'm really anxious to get back in the studio. I need to get stuff out of my head," she said.

Ceremonials is out now on Island/Universal Republic.
