Florence + The Machine have penned a new song for Tim Burton's upcoming film Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children.
Florence Welch has crafted something suitably cinematic for the film, which is set to be released shortly.
New cut 'Wish That You Were Here' is online now, and it seems to come from a deeply personal place...
"'Wish That You Were Here' is a song about the idea that love is a journey and a risk," says Florence Welch about the writing the song. "Having been on tour, I’ve lived in a sort of magical time bubble, where the days almost blend together. It’s amazing, but it comes at a cost — a cost of leaving the people you love behind for a year or two. You kind of feel like if you could sing a song into the wind, maybe the wind could take it to them in a way that you can’t with a text or a call. You just want to send your love in a different way, in a way to somehow reach the unreachable."

Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children opens on September 30th.
