Ohh Florence...

Currently totally in love with Florence + The Machine's cover of "Take Care", the title track from Drake's new album that features Rihanna.

I was immediately in love when i heard the original, which samples Gill Scott Heron and was produced by Jamie XX, the man who's one half of the mercury award winning, alternative duo The XX.

Performing it for the Radio One live lounge, I think Florence does an excellent job at handling the rapping parts of the song, that amazing voice of hers brings a whole new meaning to the lyrics.

Also, if you haven't already heard more of his material, listen to Jamie XX's remixes of these tracks by Adele and Jack Penate. Love the beats he brings to the ordinarily pop/indie tunes...
