Florence + the Machine releases cover of The Stooges’ “Search and Destroy” (listen)

Florence + the Machine just released her new album Dance Fever last week (read our review), and now she has released a deluxe edition, featuring acoustic versions of four songs from the album, plus an acoustic (with drums) cover of The Stooges' classic "Search and Destroy." Even as an acoustic song, she keeps the revved-up energy of the original intact, and it's a real treat to hear this song with Florence's larger-than-life voice. Listen below.

Florence is also sampled on the new Kendrick Lamar album, and she has an upcoming tour, including NYC shows on September 16 and 17 at Madison Square Garden. All dates are listed below.
