Florence And The Machine frontwoman Florence Welch has said that their new LP 'Ceremonials' is an album for the "iPod generation".

The singer told ETOnline that the album's mix of styles was "a kind of reflection" on owning an MP3 player.

Although she insisted she wanted to make 'Ceremonials' "sound like an album, not a collection of songs", she added:

I think this album is definitely kind of a reflection of like having an iPod… I think the album is almost like a reflection of that, of being part of that generation. Just picking bits from soul, bits from even hop hop influences, and it's that mix of styles that really influences me.

Earlier this week, Florence Welch was named as one of the richest people in the UK under the age of 30. Her fortune was estimated at £3.8 million, although she still ranked behind Arctic Monkeys singer Alex Turner and Adele.

Tickets for Florence And The Machine's UK and Ireland March 2012 tour went on sale last week (November 25). The band will begin the 11-date tour at Dublin's O2 Arena on March 2, and end the run at Newcastle's Metro Radio Arena on March 16.
