Florence + The Machine – “What Kind Of Man (Nicolas Jaar Remix)”

"What Kind Of Man," the first single from Florence + The Machine's new album How Big How Bold How Beautiful, sounds very much like Florence + The Machine. It's a big, bold art-rock howler of a song, a song that isn't the slightest bit shy or reserved. It's light years removed from the meditative,… More »

Florence + The Machine – “How Big, How Blue, How Beautiful” Video

It's been a while since we've heard from Florence + The Machine, but they're all over the festival circuit this summer, and it seems likely that they'll soon come out with a follow-up to 2011's soaring Ceremonials. And while there's still no news of an album, Florence came out with a new video today,… More »

Watch Florence Welch Cover “Get Lucky”

Last Friday night, in a moment of apparent abandon, Florence Welch (of Florence And The Machine) hopped on stage with British cover band Sourberry and did impromptu covers of Daft Punk's "Get Lucky" and the Gossip's "The Way Of Control." Of course the performance was captured for digital posterity by a member of the crowd,… More »

Florence + The Machine – “Only The Love”

The soundtrack to The Great Gatsby has a pretty huge and ridiculous list of famous contributors: Jay-Z, Beyoncé and Andre 3000, the xx, Lana Del Rey. And somewhere in there, there will also be a scene of people in gleaming vintage tuxedos set to Florence Welch's celestial wail. Florence + The Machine show u… More »

Florence + The Machine – “Lover To Lover” Video

Florence + The Machine have already released one video for "Lover To Lover," a gospel-tinged blastoff from their 2011 album Ceremonials that somehow sounds huger than most other Florence songs. That one was a stripped-back live video, but now they've got a new cinematic one from director Vincent Haycock. In this one,… More »

Calvin Harris – “Sweet Nothing” Video (Feat. Florence Welch)

Recently, Florence Welch, of ...+ The Machine fame, lent her crazy rocket-launcher wail to "Sweet Nothing," the new single from EDM anthem-generator Calvin Harris. She also shows up in the song's video, playing a lounge singer at a dingy British strip club, and she goes into onstage conniptions while her significant other, for reaso… More »

Watch Florence + The Machine Play Fallon

Last night on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon, Florence Welch, in the middle of a U.S. tour behind her nearly-a-year-old album Ceremonials, came through to sing a different version of the epic wailer "Spectrum (Say My Name)." This was an all-acoustic version, with Florence backed by guitar, harp, and string section. But she still… More »

Calvin Harris – “Sweet Nothing” (Feat. Florence Welch)

Florence Welch, the Florence of Florence + The Machine, has an uncorked mega-wail that seems like it should work really well on cheesed-out big-room dance music. And on "Sweet Nothing," the new single from superclub mainstay Calvin Harris, it does exactly that. "Sweet Nothing" is a bit sillier and more simplistic than your average Florence… More »

Florence + The Machine – “Breaking Down” Video

Most of the videos from Florence + The Machine's 2011 album Ceremonials are grandly, ridiculously operatic affairs, but that's not the case with the new "Breaking Down" clip. Instead, the video works as both an American travelogue and a celebration of all things vintage, cameras and clothes especially. In it, we… More »

Florence + The Machine – “Spectrum” Video

Yesterday, we posted Calvin Harris's remix of Florence & The Machine's Ceremonials wailer "Spectrum," and today, we get the video for the original track. David LaChapelle co-directed it alongside John Byrne, and the clip features all the sumptuous visual ridiculousness that LaChapelle's involvement would lead you to expect. Those ballet dancers! That… More »

Florence + The Machine – “Spectrum (Calvin Harris Remix)”

Florence Welch has always had some house-diva fervor in her wail, and it's fun to hear what happens when dance-pop producer Calvin Harris, fresh off of conquering the world with his Rihanna collab "We Found Love," reworks her Ceremonials track "Spectrum" into a superclub destroyer. Listen below. More »

Watch Florence + The Machine Cover Talking Heads In Animal Costumes

In order to announce their Friday-headlining spot at this years edition of the UK's Bestival, Florence And The Machine dressed up in animal costumes -- a penguin, a bunny, a dog and a fox, respectively -- and covered Talking Heads' "Wild Wild Life." Sort of reminds me of the time that Justin Timberlake played… More »

Florence + The Machine recorded a new song for the soundtrack of Snow White And The Huntsman -- a new fantasy thriller starring Charlize Theron and Kristen Stewart -- and today, that song got a video.

Watch Florence + The Machine Return To Letterman

Florence Welch is really, really good at performing on TV, summoning elemental wails and vast reserves of gravitas even immediately after David Letterman has made a forehead-slap joke about her band's name. That's what she did last night on the Late Show With David Letterman, giving "No Light, No Light" the canyon-spanning rendition it… More »

Florence & The Machine – “Breath Of Life”

The forthcoming summer movie Snow White And The Huntsman looks weirdly, surprisingly great: Lush visuals, evil cackling Charlize Theron, excessive amounts of death. And as it turns out, the movie has another thing going for it: An new operatic wailer from Florence & The Machine. "Breath Of Life," if it's over the end credits, will… More »
