Florence and the Machine Releasing “MTV Unplugged” Album

Posted on: March 7th, 2012 at 10:23 am by

Florence and the Machine is in the news again today, but for something much less scandalous than a widely-publicized bender in which she nearly torched the Bowery Hotel. Indeed. Come next month, her MTV Unplugged performance from late last year will see an official album release. The collection reportedly includes the two covers – “Try a Little Tenderness” (Otis Redding) and “Jackson” (Johnny Cash), the latter of which was a duet with Josh Homme from Queens of the Stone Age.

The intimate Unplugged performance was recorded on December 16 at Angel Orensanz on the Lower East Side (Norfolk Street). As NME notes, the fiery songstress was joined on stage by her three band members and a ten-piece gospel choir.

The Florence and the Machine Unplugged record will drop on April 9.

Only If For A Night
