10th Anniversary Limited Edition 2LP Box Set!
Original Album On Colored Vinyl + LP Of Bonus Material!
This 10th anniversary edition is a cloth bound deluxe box set featuring the
original Lungs album on colored 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 & rarities. Also included within the box are postcards and inserts,
showcasing the album's lyrics and previously unseen images from the Lungs era.
Florence Welch, an art-school dropout from South London, first gained fame at
home with two bombastic singles; "Kiss With A Fist" and "Dog Days Are Over". Not
two years after she was discovered while singing Etta James in a club bathroom,
she was awarded the 2009 Brit Awards Critics' Choice (previously won by Adele).
She found herself wowing attendee's with her incredible live performance and her
now legendary set of pipes.
Her debut album, Lungs, is made of harps, choirs, drums, quartets, strange
electronic wailing, while incorporating countless other instruments and emotions
along the way. The songs are full of Gothic Imagery, of fairytale flights of
fantasy, and although much has been read into her lyrics, Florence says it's
usually simple. "Everything is about boys!" she laughs. "The whole
album is about love - and pain. People see my lyrics as crazy, but to me it's an
honest, heartfelt album. I didn't set out to be wacky. I just want it to be
emotive." ...And that it is!
