Last Month, Florence + the Machine unveiled a new remix of “Heaven is Here” from IDLES. “IDLES are one of my favorite bands and I’ve been wanting to work on something together for a while,” said Florence Welch.
“It might be strange for people to think but I see a lot of symbiosis in what we do in terms of live performance. Connection above all else. Joyful rage and togetherness. A lot of people wished that ‘Heaven Is Here’ was longer. And I think IDLES have done the perfect job at turning it into a much-demanded dance track that loses nothing of the hex at its heart.”
Also in October, Last week, Florence + The Machine released Dance Fever (Live at Madison Square Garden), a surprise new live album recorded at the band’s two sold out Madison Square Garden shows last month.
