Florence + the Machine Take Us Behind the Scenes of Ballerina-Inspired ‘Spectrum’ Video

Here it is folks. A behind-the-scenes look at the making of Florence + the Machine’s video for ‘Spectrum.’ The music video is directed by David LaChapelle and John Byrne, who both can be seen throughout the clip — adding in their touches of genius.

The behind the scenes is a great look inside the ballerina-filled, elegantly colored party-like atmosphere used in the music video. And through the initial image in Florence’s mind, it seems that LaChapelle was the only man who could have made the dream become a reality.

“David was always the director that I envisioned making the music video for this song,” she says. “This song for me, I think it’s one of the brightest and most obviously positive messages of the record,” Florence continues, seemingly in awe of the director.

David has worked on videos with famed artists such as Christina Aguilera, Moby, No Doubt and the Vines, and holds nothing back with his direction in this video.

The feature displays Florence dancing the entire time amid a spectrum of other scenes around her — from little ballerinas to their grown up counterparts. It even goes so far as showing the dance rehearsals, showing ballerinas being tossed around like baseballs during a game of catch.

“I grew up being obsessed with musicals,” says Florence. “What we’re kind of making here is a visual controlled chaos. It’s big and colorful,” adds the redheaded superstar.
