Florence + The Machine Preview “MTV Unplugged” Performance [Watch]

Florence + The Machine have released a teaser of her MTV Unplugged performance, which is set to premiere on April 8 and 11PM EST. This performance is extra special, because it is a duet with Josh Homme, of Queens of the Stone Age, on the Johnny & June Cash classic, “Jackson.”

The TV show will be accompanied by the release of Florence’s MTV Unplugged album on April 9th. The Unplugged was taped in New York City’s Angel Orensanz Center, a synagogue built in 1849 and designated a historical landmark by the city. In it Florence is accompanied by a full symphony orchestra.

The album’s track listing also contains a cover of Otis Redding’s classic, “Try a Little Tenderness.” Florence talked about becoming “obsessed” with the track to YouTube, relaying, “I remember finding the song and just being blown away.”
