Florence Welch has promised her second album will be ''intense'' and will feature plenty of ''weird drum patterns'' throughout

Florence and the Machine's second album is to be "intense" and feature "weird drum patterns".

The 'Lungs' hitmakers are currently taking a time out from performing while they focus on writing their second album, and lead singer Florence Welch admits she is thrilled will how different it sounds to the debut LP.

She explained: "It's really intense so far! It's even more intense than the first album. It's got extra bass. We're putting a lot of bass on it and really huge weird drum patterns. There are these intense choral vocals. I'm going to try and do some stuff that's stripped back, but there's nothing I like more than endless layering and harmonies."

The 24-year-old star's music career has gone from strength to strength since her debut track 'Kiss With A Fist' was launched in 2008.

However, Florence admits she finds it confusing when her music is included in movie soundtracks.

She said: "When they did the Eat, Pray, Love trailer, I was like, 'Okay, so that means Julia Roberts and I are like friends, right?' Isn't that what that means? To me the movie world seems like a whole fantasy world. It's exciting!
