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.

      I’m a huge Garbage fan. I know their last two records weren’t too commercially successful but I thought they were great albums. Love the new song and looking forward to seeing them on their US tour in May.

      I think “Beautiful Garbage” is an absolutely perfect album, from start to finish. I don’t know why it doesn’t get the respect it deserves.

      This song took several listens to grow on me, but now I LOVE it.

      Already have my concert tickets. Yay Garbage!

      I’m also going to see Garbage. I hope they put on a good show and yes I like their last two albums. FYI if you’re thinking about seeing Garbage, go! I’ve heard that a lot of shows are sold out or going to sell out fast and it’s their first tour in a long time.
