The band's second studio album, Ceremonials, was released in October 2011, debuting atop the charts in the UK, Ireland, Australia and New Zealand.[1][8][10][11] The album's release was preceded by the promotional single "What the Water Gave Me", which peaked at number 24 in the UK, number 13 in Ireland and number 15 in New Zealand.[5][8][11] Lead single "Shake It Out" became the band's fifth top-40 hit in the UK, peaking at number 12 upon release in September 2011.[5] The track also attained international chart success, reaching number 72 on the Billboard Hot 100 and becoming the band's highest-peaking single in Ireland, where it reached number two.[6][8] The album also saw the release of singles "No Light, No Light" and "Never Let Me Go", which peaked at numbers 50 and 82 on the UK chart, respectively.[5] Their next release "Spectrum (Say My Name)" peaked at number one in the UK, becoming their first UK number-one single.[5]

In June 2015, Florence and the Machine released their third studio album, How Big, How Blue, How Beautiful, which debuted at number one in eight countries including the UK and the US and reached the top 10 of 20 countries.[1][12] The album had sold over a million copies worldwide by the end of 2015 and has been certified platinum in the UK, Australia and Poland, and gold in New Zealand.
