Best Covers: Florence+The Machine “Cornflake Girl”

Florence and the Machine are the latest act to record a session as part for Spotify’s Singles series. Recorded at RAK studios in London, their two-song set featured a Tori Amos cover and a selection off the UK outfit’s most recent album, High as Hope.

Lead singer Florence Welch’s vocal style has often been compared to that of Amos, so the band’s choice in cover has been a long time coming. Welch & co. specifically took on “Cornflake Girl”, which originally appeared on Amos’ 1994 full-length, Under the Pink. As for the High as Hope cut, the band launched into a live rendition of early single “Hunger”.
