London 2018 [no label, 1CD]

BBC Radio Two “Jo Whiley & Simon Mayo”. BBC Maida Vale studios, London, UK; July 5, 2018. Very good live stream.

In June 2018, Florence + The Machine released their fourth studio album, High As Hope. The album was executively produced by Florence Welch herself, along with Emile Haynie. Following How Big, How Blue, How Beautiful (2015), High as Hope features more minimalist, stripped-down productions, and explores themes of heartache, family, and finding comfort in loneliness. The album received positive reviews upon release, with music critics lauding Welch’s vocal performance and personal lyricism. - wikipedia

To promote the album, the group performed an extended live session in a very special edition of the show from the iconic BBC Maida Vale studios.
