Florence + the Machine Offered an Acoustic Rendition of ‘What Kind of Man’ on ‘Colbert’

The British singer songwriter turns the stormy song into an intimate strummer

Florence + the Machine released a stunning collection of big-voiced pop songs back in June, but last night she turned one of the tracks from How Big, How Blue, How Beautiful into something a little more intimate on Tuesday night on The Late Show With Stephen Colbert. On a starkly lit stage, Florence Welch offered a stripped down version of “What Kind of Man,” belting over lilting acoustic guitars and gentle piano lines. The whole thing starts out far more subdued than the recorded version, but when she builds to the song’s high point, her voice is enough to give the whole proceedings a lot of life. Watch it here.
