Florence + the Machine Ready ‘MTV Unplugged’ Album
Florence + the Machine's intimate December performance at New York's Angel Orensanz synagogue has been turned into an album. NME reports the show, which featured piano, strings and a 10-piece gospel choir, was recorded for an 'MTV Unplugged' record that hits stores next month.
In addition to featuring the group's biggest hits -- 'Dog Days are Over,' 'Shake it Out' and 'What the Water Gave Me' -- the album includes a cover of 'Jackson,' the classic song popularized by the late Johnny and June Carter Cash. On the cover, singer Florence Welch duets with Queens of the Stone Age frontman Josh Homme.
Also among the record's 11 cuts is a cover of the Otis Redding standard 'Try a Little Tenderness.' 'MTV Unplugged' will reach online and physical retailers on April 10. The band is still releasing singles from its latest album, 'Ceremonials,' which has been certified gold in the U.S. Fans can catch Florence + the Machine live in select cities on a month-long U.S. tour starting next month.
