The band's frontwoman Florence Welch also said that she still hoped that she would get to collaborate with Drake in the future, but revealed that their previous studio sessions had come nothing, save for a big drinking session. She said: "We've always been in different places and the time that we did end up in the studio together we ended up getting quite drunk together and there wasn't a song that came out of it".
