Florence to release MTV Unplugged session immediately after broadcast

Releases

Florence And The Machine

Florence And The Machine’s upcoming ‘MTV Unplugged’ performance will be available to purchase via iTunes as soon as it is broadcast in the US on Sunday.

While Florence Welch said that “it seemed like a kind of natural thing to do”, MTV’s EVP of Music and Talent Strategy Amy Doyle told The Hollywood Reporter: “I think that we are just more coordinated than we have ever been. That technology obviously now supports ‘Unplugged’ being on more platforms than it’s ever been before”.

The performance was recorded last December at former synagogue Angel Orensanz in New York, the performance features eight songs from Welch’s two albums, plus covers of Otis Redding’s ‘Try a Little Tenderness’ and Johnny Cash’s ‘Jackson’. Taking up the other half of the classic Cash/Carter duet will be Josh Homme. Obviously.
