[Watch] Florence & The Machine - "Lover to Lover" (Video)

Florence & The Machine haven't slowed down since releasing their sophomore album Ceremonials just over a year ago. Fitting then that Florence Welch admitted to needing a long overdue break when speaking to London's Evening Standard: "I’ve been on tour since I was 21. I need a break and to have the chance to do normal things, like go to the supermarket and hang out with my friends." Also fitting is the band's new video for the Ceremonials track "Lover to Lover", which focuses on the distressed relationship between Welch and actor Ben Mendelsohn.

Directed by Vincent Haycock, the troubled love story of Welch and Mendelsohn is wrapped up in flourishing visuals and well placed shots, including the redhead songstress taking a dive into an early morning ocean wave. Check out the video above (via NOWNESS).

[Watch] Florence & The Machine x Dev Hynes - "Hitchin' a Ride" (Green Day Cover)

Growing up and getting into music at school most likely meant at some point you listened to Green Day. I personally had a tendency to get back catalogue's of a band once I like one album. Nimrod was  released way back in 1997 when I'd have been what, 8, so I didn't have it when it first dropped. I did grow into a fan though in my teens and "Hitchin’ a Ride" was an early favourite.

At this year's Coachella Noisey recorded some live sessions and one of these consists of Florence Welch and Dev Hynes of Lightspeed Champion performed the aforementioned Green Day track, "Hitchin' a Ride". Take yourself back to the mid 90's with their take on the track above.

[Watch] Florence & The Machine - "Spectrum" (Official Video)

Florence & The Machine return with a new visual for their single "Spectrum" which features on their latest LP, Ceremonials. Ms Welch dons a weirdly cut red mop top in the video and it also features a lot of ballet dancers. A pretty neat looking visual from David LaChapelle though. See what you make of it at the top.

Earlier in the week we heard Calvin Harris' house remix of the track too. If you missed it, go have a listen.

[Watch] Florence & the Machine - "Wild Wild Life" (Talking Heads Cover)

We know Florence Welch likes to don some pretty flamboyant attire every now and again but to announce her headline set at Bestival over the Summer she has done something a little more left field. Florence and 3 others have covered Talking Heads' track "Wild Wild Life" whilst wearing a the costumes of a penguin, a fox, a lion and finally a rabbit! It's certainly a light hearted way to start a Wednesday. Head over to the Bestival site for ore info on the fest once you've enjoyed the video at the top.
