Florence Welch, better known alongside her band as Florence and The Machine, confidently announces her arrival on Lungs. With several strong singles taking up a fair portion of this debut release, it's clear that Welch is as much a pop writer as she is a left-field artist, despite the early influence of punk and grunge on her life. Musically, these influences are tempered by an admiration for soul and contemporary indie. Welch also received the Critics' Choice award at the Brits in 2009, usually a sign of big things to come. Includes the singles You've Got The Love and Rabbit Heart (Raise It Up).
2LP - This 10th anniversary edition is a cloth bound deluxe box set featuring the original Lungs album on coloured vinyl, and an LP of bonus material, hand-picked by Florence Welch and never before available on vinyl. This material includes three previously unreleased demo tracks, a rare acoustic version of My Boy Builds Coffins, a cover of Oh! Darling Live at Abbey Road and a number of B sides and rarities. Also included within the box are postcards and inserts, showcasing the album’s lyrics and previously unseen images from the Lungs era.
