House classic gets covered

Brit award winners Florence And The Machine are set to release their cover of 'You've Got The Love' - and you can see the video now!

'You've Got The Love' is one of the best known tracks of the rave era. With its roots in the primordial sludge of house the song has rocked dancefloors across three decades and in the careful hands of Florence And The Machine it shows no signs of stopping.

Originally a house track named 'Your Love' its author Frankie Knuckles introduced the sleek sounds of Italo Disco to the nightclubs of Chicago. Blending disco, soul and electro the track lit a fire that still blazes.

Later, genuine soul diva Candi Staton gave the song a lung bursting overhaul resulting in 'You've Got The Love'. A global hit, Florence Welch has been using the song as a live favourite for some time.

Now shrinking violet herself, Florence And The Machine's lung bursting take on the house classic demonstrates what a vocal talent she is. Capping a tremendous year for the singer the track is due to be released on November 16th.
