Florence has come out the other side of the wreckage. For the final chapter of The Odyssey, the film project created to accompany her album How Big How Blue How Beautiful - and also now available to view in full - Florence and Vincent Haycock have come up with a forward-looking finale.

The chapter to accompany Third Eye begins on an image of Florence being carried away from fiery rubble, and this revisits many of the themes from the previous chapters one last time. But Florence is now untethered to the demons that had followed her up till now. 

The video is just a great closing statement - life-affirming and filled with cheer. It takes place at nighttime on the street in front of a dazzling concert hall, where we follow Florence down into the depths of the basement. There, she gets swarmed by dancers once again, in a scene that is highly reminiscent of What Kind Of Man and Delilah. But quickly the tone quickly turns lively and reverent, and then poignant when Florence is led by a musician back onto the stage.
