About Florence Welch and the Machine
Fronted by the glorious Florence Welch, the indie group have released three chart-topping albums, received worldwide acclaim and earned two BRITs amongst other awards.
The band’s debut release came in 2009 in the form of Lungs. The collection initially entered the UK Albums Chart in second position but rose to No.1 the following year. Released by Island records, the album was produced by Paul Epworth (Coldplay, Adele and John Legend) and includes singles Cosmic Love, You’ve Got The Love, Kiss With A Fist and Drumming Song.
Their music was recognised across the world and went on to feature in a number of popular films and television shows, including Skins, The Vampire Dairies, Gossip Girl and The Twilight Saga: Eclipse.
2011 came with the band’s follow-up: Ceremonials. Again they teamed up with Paul Epworth which proved to be a winning combination. Ceremonials not only became their second No.1 but was nominated for two Grammy Awards and spawned the hits Shake It Out, Never Let Me Go and Spectrum (Say My Name).
Their third studio album was released nearly four years later in 2015. Fans in eager anticipation of the collection weren’t disappointed with the results. The collection mixed Florence Welch’s powerful vocals with beautiful instrumentals. The album was described by Florence Welch as ‘her most personal yet’ and was produced by Markus Dravs, while Paul Epworth worked on the album’s closing song Mother.
