Listen to Florence + The Machine’s cover of The Stooges’ ‘Search And Destroy’

The acoustic track features on the deluxe version of 'Dance Fever'

Florence + The Machine have shared their new cover of The Stooges’ ‘Search And Destroy’ – you can hear their acoustic rendition of the track below.

The cover features on the newly released deluxe version of the Florence Welch-led band’s fifth studio album ‘Dance Fever’, which arrived last week.

As well as previously unreleased acoustic versions of the tracks ‘Cassandra’, ‘Free’, ‘Morning Elvis’ and ‘My Love’, this new version of ‘Dance Fever’ includes a cover of The Stooges’ ‘Search And Destroy’.


Originally released in 1973 by the Iggy Pop-led band, you can listen to Florence + The Machine’s acoustic take on ‘Search And Destroy’ below.

Florence + The Machine are currently in a race with Kendrick Lamar for this week’s Number One album in the UK.

According to the Official Charts Company, Welch and her band appear to be the favourites to clinch the top spot – though Lamar’s ‘Mr Morale & The Big Steppers’ is the most-streamed album in the UK this week.

Welch is credited on the ‘Mr. Morale & The Big Steppers’ track ‘We Cry Together’ as it samples the Florence + The Machine track ‘June’.
