Florence + the Machine - Page 4
Last month, we announced that DJ Calvin Harris would collaborate on a new song with singer Florence Welch, of Florence + the Machine fame, and now comes the completed song. Harris has posted the track, 'Sweet Nothing' (not 'Sweet Nothings,' as we had previously reported), which will be featured on his forthcoming third album, '18 Months,' which drops on Oct. 29.
Florence Welch mixes her raw vocal power and overwhelming presence to bring a Florence + the Machine show to life. It doesn’t hurt that her stage clothes often include exquisite capes and gowns --- or in this case a dress that just happens to open up like angel wings that could leave a person completely breathless. Welch is a true ethereal beauty both in sight and sound.
There was a time not too long ago it seemed Florence + the Machine's summer was going be over before it really hit its stride. Singer Florence Welch was dealing with a vocal illness, which had sidelined the band and forced the cancellation of several dates. Lucky for fans, Welch was able to rest up, and before anybody knew it she was all better and back on the road. Perhaps the biggest benefactors of that recovery was the massive crowd that caught Florence + the Machine at Lollapalooza on Saturday (Aug. 5) in Chicago.
Judging from her recent performance on ABC's 'Good Morning America,' Florence Welch seems to be recovering nicely from the vocal issues that forced Florence + the Machine to cancel several European dates while she rested her voice. But while Welch certainly is grateful to have her pipes working again, she admits that one sacrifice she made while getting better has not been easy: kicking her caffeine addiction.
Florence + the Machine recently nixed several European dates due to an unidentified problem with Florence Welch's voice, but the band was back at it Wednesday with an appearance on ABC's 'Good Morning America.' Welch took the opportunity to discuss the fright of losing her voice during a performance -- and how badly she didn't want to cancel any gigs because of her ailment.
