Five days before being released as Dance Fever’s fourth single, Florence + the Machine debuted “Free,” along with “Girls Against God,” live during their intimate show at Newcastle’s O2 City Hall on April 15, 2022. It was their first live show since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The following day, the band played “Free” again during a second intimate show at King George’s Hall in Blackburn. Before performing the uplifting track, Florence Welch commented:

This one’s about my anxiety.

The music video of the song features English actor Bill Nighy playing Florence’s anxiety character. The music video is, as displayed on its final seconds,

Dedicated to the spirit, creativity and perseverance of our brave Ukrainian friends. Filmed in Kyiv on 18 November with Ukrainian filmmakers and artists, whose radiant freedom can never be extinguished.

The song’s title was officially revealed on 11th April when Dance Fever’s tracklist started being unveiled through the band’s website, although it had previously been found on Target’s website when the album became available to preorder on 10th March.

Lyrics

[Verse 1]
Sometimes I wonder if I should be medicated
If I would feel better just lightly sedated
The feeling comes so fast and I cannot control it
I’m on fire, but I’m trying not to show it

[Pre-Chorus]
As it picks me up, puts me down
It picks me up, puts me down
Picks me up, it puts me down
A hundred times a day
It picks me up, puts me down
Chews me up, spits me out
Picks me up, it puts me down

[Verse 2]
I’m always running from something
I push it back, but it keeps on coming
And being clever never got me very far
Because it’s all in my head
“You’re too sensitive,” they said
I said, “Okay, but let’s discuss this at the hospital”

[Pre-Chorus]
(As it)
Picks me up, puts me down
Picks me up, puts me down
Picks me up, it puts me down
A hundred times a day
Picks me up, puts me down
Chews me up, spits me out
It picks me up, puts me down

[Chorus]
But I hear the music, I feel the beat
And for a moment, when I’m dancing, I am free
I hear the music, I feel the beat
And for a moment, when I’m dancing
I am free
I am free

[Bridge]
Is this how it is?
Is this how it’s always been?
To exist in the face of suffering and death
And somehow still keep singing?
Oh, like Christ up on a cross
Who died for us, who died for what?
Oh, don’t you wanna call it off?
But there is nothing else that I know how to do
But to open up my arms and give it all to you

[Chorus]
‘Cause I hear the music, I feel the beat
And for a moment, when I’m dancing
I am free
I am free
I am free
I am free
