Florence and the Machine stopped by SiriusXM to perform a set of favorites and fresh tracks last week and the results were as fiery as you might expect. After lead singer Florence Welch's interview on The Spectrum, the band kicked off their set with a simple and intimate performance of their 2018 single “Sky Full of Songs” from their new album High as Hope.
The band then played the fan favorite “Cosmic Love” from their 2009 debut, Lungs. Welch's vocals were ethereal and soared throughout the track, pairing well with the harp featured on the live performance.
They also cued up a strong and joyful performance of another new song off of High as Hope, with Welch explaining during her interview that “Hunger” is a celebratory song about unity in the human condition rather than something dark and dramatic.
The band closed out their set with an endearing cover of Fleetwood Mac's “Silver Springs,” doing the song originally written for the group's 1977 Rumours album justice with beautifully in sync piano, acoustic guitar, and, of course Florence's unique and powerful vocals.
