For the Mother’s Day episode of Saturday Night Live hosted by Reese Witherspoon, Florence + the Machine gave fans a taste of her upcoming new album, How Big How Blue How Beautiful.
With a broken foot, Florence Welch, wearing all-white, performed her song “Ship to Wreck” sitting on a stool, but it didn’t take away from her performance, which featured four backup singers and a five-piece band in black.
Sure, she didn’t move around during her third appearance on the show, but you don’t have to do too much when you have a voice like that.
On the track she asks, “Did I drink too much?/ Am I losing touch?/Did I build this ship to wreck?”
Later, Florence Welch and her band returned to perform her new song “What Kind of Man,” that had the singer getting a lot more riled up and doing a lot more hand motions than before.
