The fairytale of Snow White has always been a white-hot entertainment topic, but lately the cursed young lady with black hair and skin as white as snow has reached even more popularity the renewal of television shows like Once Upon a Time and current movies like Mirror, Mirror and the forthcoming Snow White and the Hunstman starring Charlize Theron as the Evil Queen and Twilight’s Kristen Stewart as Snow White.

The movie comes out on June 1st, but the soundtrack, which includes a song called “Breath of Life” by Florence and the Machine, comes out a few days before on May 29th.

Although the song is already released,  a gorgeous music video has appeared featuring Florence and the Machine in the studio with a massive choir and scenes from the film. The clip shows exactly how the soaring chamber pop song fits into the storyline of the magical Snow White and the Huntsman movie.


“The Queen is just this incredible character; so hungry for life but so dead inside. She’s sort of eternal, but inside there’s nothing. She’s kind of like charcoal or something,” Florence Welch told MTV News about her inspiration behind writing the song.

“[There are] these amazing scenes where she’s kind of picking out birds’ hearts and eating them. [She has] this thirst for youth and for life, but for what kind of life? This darkness, but she’s so beautiful, so it’s this kind of juxtaposition between beauty and, ultimately, death.”
