Songs can be incredibly prophetic, like subconscious warnings or messages to myself, but I often don't know what I'm trying to say till years later. Or a prediction comes true and I couldn't do anything to stop it, so it seems like a kind of useless magic.

The first book from songwriter and Florence + the Machine frontwoman Florence Welch, Useless Magic brings together 288 pages of lyrics, never-before-seen poetry and sketches.

Taken from Welch’s own scrapbook-style journals, the book offers an extraordinary chance to see inside the creative alchemy behind some of Florence + The Machine’s chart-topping anthems. It also offers unique personal insights into Welch’s own life from her experiences of suffering with an eating disorder to her thoughts on love and what it means to live your life in the glare of the spotlight. .

MEDIA REVIEWS

'Her first book of poetry is an elegant collaged scrapbook.' - The Observer 

'A varied, visually arresting tome, it brings together poems, lyrics, sketches and notes from Welch's personal and professional life, making the reader feel as though they're peeking into a private journal.' - Refinery 29 

'A treasure... beautiful. Generous in its honesty, by the end you feel as though you have climbed into the colourful, and sometimes tortured, world of a passionate artist.' - iNews
