New Music From Florence + The Machine, Garbage And More!

MTV premiered Florence + the Machine’s episode of Unplugged on April 8. (Yep, Unplugged is still around.) And in addition to some gorgeous acoustic renderings of Florence Welch’s own material, it featured Queens of the Stone Age frontman Josh Homme joining Welch onstage for a cover of “Jackson.” Now, it’s hard to beat Johnny Cash and June Carter’s original, but Welch and Homme come pretty close. Both have deeply soulful voices that lend something new to a song that usually sounds best sung by wilder, less polished voices. The album version of Florence + the Machine: Unplugged is on sale now available now—or you can watch it in its entirety on the show’s website.
