MTV Unplugged - Florence And The Machine
This 2012 release finds the British band stripping down their heavenly sound to the divine essentials. This marks a landmark milestone for Florence + The Machine. Not only is she continuing a tradition popularised by legends including Paul McCartney, Nirvana, Bob Dylan, Alicia Keys, Lauryn Hill and Oasis, she's bringing listeners even closer to her rapturous sound in an acoustic setting. This special night was recorded in New York, NY. The set list boasts favourites from both of her earlier Universal Republic Records releases. There's a hypnotic rendition of her breakout double platinum single "Dog Days Are Over" as well as a chillingly beautiful cover of Johnny Cash and June Carter's "Jackson" featuring Queens of the Stone Age and Them Crooked Vultures singer Josh Homme. In addition, she gives a wonderful take on Otis Redding's "Try a Little Tenderness" for this performance.
