Watch Florence + the Machine Perform ‘Ship to Wreck’ on ‘Tonight Show’
With the release of their long-awaited album, How Big How Blue How Beautiful, yesterday (June 2), Florence and the Machine celebrated the new record by stopping by The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon to perform "Ship to Wreck."
Although Florence Welch has been nursing a broken foot from Coachella back in April, she was looking great and standing strong at the mic. While we don't see her jumping around like she typically would during a live performance, we're more than happy to see her no longer sitting on a stool as she had to in the past.
Dressed in tailored burnt orange blazer and crisp white shirt, her performance of the song had a little different tinge to it compared to the studio version. Instead of the smoother vocals, there is a little bit of a yodel that's more noticeable in this rendition. While slight, it adds a nice layer to the sound and shows another facet of Welch's vocal talent.
And Fallon was so impressed by the performance that all he could say as he pulled her into a tight hug was, "Oh my goodness! Fantastic!"
Florence and the Machine's time in New York City isn't over yet. The U.K. band will be performing on Good Morning America on Friday morning (June 5). They will also be playing the first night of Governors Ball later that evening at Randall's Island in New York City. So if you're heading to the Big Apple music fest, be sure to check her out on the main stage.
