Florence Welch has teased new music in a brief video, featuring her as a mermaid in a bathtub. The snippet comes just weeks after her band’s rendition of No Doubt’s classic ‘Just A Girl‘ for the second season of Yellowjackets.
“I’m such a huge fan of Yellowjackets and this era of music, and this song especially had a huge impact on me growing up, so I was thrilled to be asked to interpret it in a ‘deeply unsettling’ way for the show,” said Welch of the cover. “We tried to really add some horror elements to this iconic song to fit the tone of the show. And as someone whose first musical love was pop punk and Gwen Stefani, it was a dream job.”
Welch also recently announced that her The Great Gatsby musical adaptation is slated to premiere on Broadway next year. “Musicals were my first love, and I feel a deep connection to [F. Scott] Fitzgerald’s broken romanticism,” she said in a statement at the time. “It is an honor to have been offered the chance to recreate this book in song.”
In other news, Florence + The Machine is set to headline this year’s Rock En Seine festival, alongside Billie Eilish, Placebo, and The Strokes. Other confirmed acts include Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Foals, Wet Leg, Fever Ray, Turnstile, Angel Olsen, Dry Cleaning, and The Murder Capital.
Additionally, the singer-songwriter recently praised Kelly Clarkson’s cover of her song ‘Free‘.
