Florence + The Machine performed on tonight’s episode of MTV Unplugged. The talented singer/songwriter played an hour long set that mostly featured songs from her latest album Ceremonials (2011). However the show did include a rendition of both “Drumming” and her hit single “Dog Days Are Over” from her debut album Lungs (2009).
The show also featured a cover of the Marvin Gaye classic “Try A Little Tenderness.” The British songstress proclaimed this song as her favorite, and during the song she gave a special shout-out to Kanye West, who was also in the audience. The second cover of the short set was a version of the Johnny and June Carter Cash’s “Jackson.”
