Florence And The Machine's Florence Welch has said that she would most love to have Tom Waits cover one of her tracks.

The band performed at the opening of the Harrods sale this morning (December 27), offering shoppers acoustic renditions of their recent releases 'What The Water Gave Me' and Shake It Out'.

They then took part in an online question and answer session with fans via the shop's official Twitter page and after she was asked which artist she would most like to hear cover one of her band's songs and what song she would like it to be, Welch responded by saying: "I would love Tom Waits to cover 'Shake It Out".

Florence And The Machine begin their 2012 arena tour at Dublin's O2 Arena on March 2 and end the run at Newcastle's Metro Radio Arena on March 16. The trek includes three dates at London's Alexandra Palace on March 8, 9 and 10. The Horrors will provide support at all of the shows.
