Florence and the Machine
Release Date: 20 October
How apropos? The debut album from Florence Welch and her accompanying Machine is titled Lungs, and boy, does this girl have some?
The British sensation’s album dropped in the US on Tuesday after smashing charts overseas, having already been certified platinum in the UK since coming out in July. Welch is on a mission to light up America as well. She has sold out two concerts in New York and Los Angeles, and is starting to make the rounds on the late night circuit as well, hitting Letterman on October 27th and recording for Kimmel two days later (airdate TBA).
