Album Intro

Following in the footsteps of such luminaries as Paul McCartney, Nirvana, Bob Dylan, Lauryn Hill, Alicia Keys and Oasis, Florence + the Machine have recorded a session for MTV Unplugged which will be released on CD, download & CD/DVD this coming April.

Consisting of some of her biggest songs to date across both her debut album ‘Lungs’ and her recent, 1.7 million selling follow up ‘Ceremonials, this collection of live, acoustic sessions goes further to prove her unique talent.

Alongside three of her band members and a 10 piece Gospel choir from New York, Florence played a set that included well known tracks like ‘Dog Days Are Over’, ‘Cosmic Love’, ‘Shake It Out’ and ‘No Light, No Light’. Florence also offered up two brilliant covers of Johnny Cash’s ‘Jackson’ as well as a beautiful rendition of ‘Try A Little Tenderness’.

For the ‘Jackson’ cover she was joined by Josh Homme who travelled to New York especially to record this stripped back version of the June & Johnny classic.

Earlier that day, Florence and Kanye West had been hanging out at an abandoned house in the outskirts of NY for a US vogue shoot with Annie Lebowitz. She invited him to the show, which he came to with Q –Tip before all heading off to the afterparty, held by Florence & Josh Homme at New York’s legendary Cabin.
