Florence + The Machine Go Unplugged For MTV [VIDEO]

Who says MTV doesn’t play music anymore? MTV’s classic ‘Unplugged’ series begins a new season on April 9th with a performance by Florence + The Machine. The set will be released as a CD/DVD combo the next day. See a teaser here of the intimate, emotional ”Unplugged’ performance.

Singer Florence Welch told Reuters the band recorded the show back in December. Welch said, that night the stage of the Angel Orensanz synagogue on New York’s Lower East Side was lit with candles, which occasionally caused her to be overcome with emotion. “I had to stop myself after every song. I would be like, ‘Wow.'”

Florence + The Machine was backed by a 10-piece choir for the show and performed songs from both 2009’s Lungs and last year’s Ceremonials. They also covered “Try A Little Tenderness”, made famous by Otis Redding. In true ‘Unplugged’ fashion, there was a special guest appearance too. Josh Homme of Queens of the Stone Age apparently comes out to perform the Johnny Cash and June Carter classic “Jackson” with Welch.

Check out a teaser trailer of this ‘Unplugged’ performance:
