Published Feb 26, 2015Florence and the Machine recently laid out plans for their follow up to 2011's Ceremonials, announcing that How Big, How Blue, How Beautiful will be arriving on June 2 via Republic Records.
Along with the announcement, Florence Welch and co. shared a video for latest single "What Kind of Man" — and that track has now been given a makeover courtesy of NYC producer and electronic musician Nicolas Jaar.
The original guides the listener through a sombre intro before bursting into a "stomping riff-rocker" that hears Welch belting it out with all her might. Jaar's take gets the groove going early on, adding distortion to Welch's wails and looping her echoing voice into a mesmerizing 12-minute spiral.
You can hear the reworked version of "What Kind of Man" below.
