Florence and the Machine has released the deluxe edition of her new album Dance Fever. It features four acoustic renditions of songs from the LP – ‘Cassandra’, ‘Free’, ‘Morning Elvis’, and ‘My Love’ – as well as a cover the Stooges’ ‘Search and Destroy’, taken from their 1973 album Raw Power. Take a listen below.
In a recent interview with Apple Music’s Zane Lowe, Florence Welch talked about drawing inspiration from Iggy Pop. “I was thinking about Nick Cave, I was thinking about Leonard Cohen,” she said. “I was thinking about how, in some ways, although everyone undergoes huge changes, their physical bodies – especially moving through touring – have been allowed to remain unchanged and they can commit their body entirely to the stage,” she said. “In the singing, I’m trying to still embody them. In the lower baritones, I’m trying to do a Leonard or a Nick or an Iggy Pop.”
