Ah, 2009. Simpler times, eh? Skinny jeans were still a “thing” and Brexit wasn’t, and flame-haired Florence Welch burst into our lives for the very first time, with + The Machine in tow. Releasing the magical debut ‘Lungs’ in July a whole decade ago, it’s - quite rightly - getting a fitting birthday tribute.
To celebrate the milestone 10 year anniversary, Florence + The Machine will be dropping a super special collectors box set, full of unreleased songs, B-sides and two never-before-heard demos ‘My Best Dress’ and ‘Donkey Kosh’. Available on 16th August, there’s also a cloth bound box set with ‘Lungs’ on pink vinyl, postcards, inserts of unseen images, unreleased tracks, and just basically everything a Florence stan could ever want.
