Florence and the Machine plan to take year-long hiatus
After releasing two critically acclaimed albums and touring non-stop for the last three years, Florence Welch of Florence and the Machine has decided she needs a break. In a recent interview with Style magazine, Welch spoke of her plan to take a year-long hiatus from music. The singer also discusses the vocal injury she sustained earlier this year while performing at a concert where she actually heard something â€œpop or snapâ€ in her throat. Luckily there was no permanent damage. Although we canâ€™t expect any new music from Florence Welch and the Machine for at least a year, she will be making an appearance on a new album from Scottish DJ Calvin Harris, which will also feature performances by Rihanna and Ellie Goulding. That album is titled 18 Months and is due out in October.
