Florence & The Machine are basking in the glow of a #1 single on the British iTunes Top 100 chart. But it’s not dumb luck that it ended up there. Singer and frontwoman Florence Welch has been Tweeting up a storm since the release of Calvin Harris‘ remix of “Spectrum (Say My Name).” The song was leaked by Florence herself weeks before it was available for purchase. Upon formal release through iTunes, it blasted up the charts in just a matter of days and still holds on to the top spot.
Prompted by a fan tweeting at the singer, Welch recently began commenting on various remixes, both authorized and not. She weighed in on a few worth highlighting, some by high-profile producers.
Shake It Out remixed by Benny Benassi
Rabbit Heart remixed by P.E.S.T.
Florence & The Machine’s latest full-length album Ceremonials was released October 31st, 2011 and reached the number one position on the UK Albums Chart in its first week and hit number six on the US Billboard 200.
