Rihanna samples Florence + The Machine’s ‘Only If For A Night’ for new song – listen

The pop singer lends from Welch's 2011 track of the same name

Rihanna has showcased a new song in a series of adverts for fashion house Dior.

The track, titled ‘Only If For A Night’, lends a sample from Florence And The Machine‘s 2011 song of the same name. Florence’s track featured on her second studio album ‘Ceremonials’. Preview Rihanna’s version below. It’s not yet known when the full track will be released or if it will be included on her upcoming LP ‘R8’.


Florence Welch releases her forthcoming LP, titled ‘How Big, How Blue, How Beautiful’, on June 1. It follows 2009 debut ‘Lungs’ and 2011 follow-up ‘Ceremonials’. Produced by Marcus Dravs (Björk, Arcade Fire, Coldplay), the album also includes contributions from Paul Epworth, Kid Harpoon and John Hill.

Welch was recently confirmed for this year’s Glastonbury Festival, which runs from June 24-28 at its traditional home of Worthy Farm, Somerset. Speaking to Billboard recently, Welch said of the booking, “I remember being 20 at the Glastonbury festival. I remember looking at the Pyramid Stage and thinking, ‘I wish I could perform there just one time.’ It’s hard to imagine that you think about something you’d like to have happen in your life and it happens. For a pessimistic British person that’s very hard to deal with.”

The ‘How Big, How Blue, How Beautiful’ tracklisting is as follows:

‘Ship To Wreck’
‘What Kind Of Man’
‘How Big, How Blue, How Beautiful’
‘Queen Of Peace’
‘Various Storms & Saints’
‘Long & Lost’
‘Third Eye’
‘St Jude’
