Florence & the Machine singer falls into a trance before shows
In a recent interview to Rolling Stone magazine, Florence Welch opened up about her pre-gig ritual, revealing she likes to fall into a trance before gigs.
Why? Well, the Florence & the Machine leader said she needs to be open to the spirit of performance by the time she hits the stage.
The singer, who is currently on tour in North America with her band, says she listens to a particular music playlist backstage to get her into the right state of mind.
“Sometimes I’ll put on something and listen to it over and over again,” she said, adding “I have to start giving myself over to whatever it is that’s in charge of performances – the performance spirit or whatever the f**k it is. I don’t know, because it’s not really me.“
