Professor Green: ‘I’d love to record with Florence And The Machine’

Rapper hails Florence Welch's 'unique outlook on music'

Professor Green has revealed plans to work with Florence And The Machine after hailing the singer’s “different outlook on music”.

The rapper – real name Stephen Manderson – missed out on the Number One spot in the albums chart last month when Florence Welch’s ‘Ceremonials’ went to Number One.

But he told the Daily Star he wasn’t bitter that his LP ‘At Your Inconvenience’ lost out in the race for the top spot – and he would be keen to collaborate with her.

Green said:

Florence has got a great voice. I’d love to work with her. She’s got such a different outlook on music to anyone else out there. Together we’d be able to come up with something great.

However, the rapper said it was a conscious decision not to have any guests on his album aside from Emeli Sande, who was unknown when she recorded vocals on his track ‘Read All About It’.

“I hadn’t gone looking to work with Lily [Allen] when we worked together on the first album. Covering ‘Dub Be Good To Me’ was her idea, Green added.
