We’re not sure why they’re just releasing this now, but the Green Day cover above is the first in a series of clips featuring Florence + the Machine and Dev Hynes (Blood Orange, Lightspeed Champion) performing an intimate set at one of the Ace Hotel’s Coachella parties.
In semi-related news, Florence Welch has been forced to cancel her appearances at the Benicassim Festival on Thursday and the Optimus Alive this weekend due to a vocal injury. Taking to Twitter, she explained, “I cannot sing for a week…Seriously I felt something snap, it was very frightening.”
Check out our Florence + the Machine cover story from self-titled‘s early days here.

Now that we’ve had nearly a week to process this year’s South by Southwest festival, self-titled thought we’d take a minute to dish out a lengthy list of completely random awards in such crucial categories as the Dopest Shoes and the Set That Should Have Been Horribly Boring But Wasn’t. Congratulations to all…

It all started with Dev and I talking over the phone about what the video could be, and then we sent each other some references. From there, I wrote up a proper treatment and went out to find the locations. (Dev plays basketball at those courts all the time.) We kept referencing videos like 2Pac’s “Brenda’s Got A Baby” and LL Cool J’s “I Need Love” because they are sentimental; but maybe also a little but funny, and the visual style is just incredible.
