Florence + The Machine – “Try A Little Tenderness” (Otis Redding Cover)

FLORENCE
Listen to our FAVORITE ALBUMS OF 2014. Make sure you don't miss any tunes: FOLLOW US ON TWITTER.

You already know Florence and+the Machine stopped by MTV Unplugged late in 2011 to perform a selection of originals and covers, and they’re now releasing this recording as their second live album. Looks like Flo and co. scoured the hip-hop charts for cover inspiration – you already heard their impressive take on Drake’s “Take Care,” and you can now sample their cover of Otis Redding’s “Try a Little Tenderness,” which you probably last heard in sample form via Kanye and Jay-Z’s “Otis.” Florence’s take is, like the original, a scarcely-instrumented showcase that allows her voice to take front and center – its bare-bones quality only further guarantees chills up your spine. Check it out, and if you have some time, you can watch Florence + The Machine’s MTV Unplugged set in its entirety over at MTV.
