The Florence Welch-led band will headline a number of European music festivals this summer.
Fans of Florence + The Machine have received letters titled "Chapter 1", hinting at the band's imminent return.
Having refrained from making any major releases since 2020, fans of the indie-rock outfit have patiently awaited new music from the English group.
A Florence + The Machine fan account on Twitter originally shared photos of the teasers this weekend, with the announcement arriving in a pink envelope with a playing card featuring Florence on the front, titled "KING."

The teasers landed ahead of the 'Dog Days Are Over' band's live comeback, which is slated for this summer as they headline a number of European festival sets.
Welch and co. will headline Norway's Øya, Finland's Flow and Madrid's Mad Cool.
Another project on the horizon for Welch is a stage adaptation of The Great Gatsby.
She said of the novel adaptation: “This book has haunted me for a large part of my life. It contains some of my favourite lines in literature. Musicals were my first love, and I feel a deep connection to Fitzgerald’s broken romanticism. It is an honour to have been offered the chance to recreate this book in song.”
The project will feature music and lyrics from Welch as well contributions from Oscar and Grammy Award nominee Thomas Bartlett.
The frontwoman previously contributed to the soundtrack of Baz Luhrmann's 2013 adaptation of the classic novel with the jazz-age inspired track, 'Over the Love.' The singer will delve further into the era for her version.
Florence + The Machine's last album, High As Hope, was released in 2018. The group then shared a single titled 'Light of Love' in 2020. Their latest offering is a track called 'Call Me Cruella' from the 2021 Disney reimagining Cruella.
