Florence + The Machine To Re-Release 'Lungs' On Aug. 16, Debut Two Previously Unreleased Tracks
GRAMMY-nominated pop/rock greats Florence + The Machine released their debut Lungs 10 years ago on July 6. In honor of that massive anniversary, the band has announced plans to release a special collector's box set and digital package on Aug. 16.
Lungs special edition features previously unheard material, B-sides and rarities, including two unreleased demos, "My Best Dress" and "Donkey Kosh," which are available to hear today. Check them out below.
In addition to the previously unheard material, the cloth-bound deluxe box set will include the original Lungs album on pink vinyl, as well as an LP of bonus material that, according to a release, has been curated by Florence herself that has never been available on vinyl before. There's also a rare acoustic version of "My Boy Builds Coffins" and a cover of "Oh! Darling" Live at Abbey Road. Finally, there will be postcards and inserts showcasing previously unseen images from the Lungs era.
Florence + The Machine were nominated for a Best New Artist GRAMMY in 2010, shortly following Lungs' release.
