Florence + the Machine are headlining the Isle of Wight’s famous Bestival this year, and they celebrated the announcement by recording a cover of the Talking Heads classic “Wild Wild Life.” A few months ago we would’ve thought it was a weird choice for Florence, but that was before her Drake and Otis Redding covers – basically, girl’s gonna cover what she wants! We’re digging her band’s stripped-down instrumentation and the adorable video in which they all appear in animal costumes, but if you’re at all used to David Byrne’s crazy vocal idiosyncrasies in the original, Florence’s impossibly gorgeous voice will take some getting used to. Check it out.

Previously, we heard Dev Hynes (aka Lightspeed Champion!) remix / reconstruct “Never Let Me Go.”
