Florence Welch and her band are starting to record new material for their upcoming album

Florence + the Machine fans will be happy to hear that the band is started to drum up ideas for their highly-anticipated, upcoming album. Frontwoman Florence Welch announced via Twitter earlier this week that she’s currently in Jamaica working hard with the guys on songs for the groups follow-up to 2011’s “Ceremonials.” Judging by the tweet, the new tracks might take on a reggae flavor.

Welch tweeted a picture of herself in a hotel room adorned with pictures of late, great reggae musician Bob Marley. Along with the photo, she tweeted, “Hello world. xx Set up In the Bob Marley room..about to go to the Geejam studios… #backtowork #jamaicastyle.”

Florence + the Machine have their work cut out for them when it comes to matching the success of “Ceremonials.” The album debuted at No. 6 on the Billboard 200 albums chart in 2011, pushing an impressive 105,000 copies in its debut week, reports Nielsen Soundscan.
