Florence Welch has confirmed that she is working on third Florence + The Machine album.

Speaking last night at The Other Ball in central London, a Mark Ronson-hosted fundraiser for the Arms Around The Child charity, the singer told NME that she would not be performing any new material on the evening “because it’s not ready yet!” When asked if there was new material she smiled and confirmed: “Yeah. Yeah there is.”

“It feels really good, actually,” she said of being back onstage again. “It feels amazing – there’s an amazing choir up there and a harp set up. [It feels like] ‘Oh yeah, this! This is what I do – I’m not hiding in a studio 24 hours a day. It feels good.”

Welch performed two songs at the event, which took place at the One Mayfair venue, in addition to short sets from Lily Allen, Rudimental and Blood Orange. There was also a charity auction to raise money for the organisation, which helps children in the developing world.

Florence adopts Battersea rescue cat ‘for company’

Feb 1 • by Ina • No CommentsArticle, Interview, News, Press

According to Evening Standart, Florence has adopted a new cat named “Missus”. Be sure to read the full article below, be aware of cuteness overflow!

She tours all over the world but Florence and the Machine star Florence Welch knows how important it is to come home to a friendly face. The singer, 27, has adopted a cat from Battersea Cats and Dogs Home to keep her company while she works on her new album.

She chose tortoiseshell beauty Missus, who was only taken in by the animal charity last week after her owner could no longer care for her, because of her “friendly” nature. Florence now hopes the four-year-old feline will be the perfect songwriting partner as she works on a follow up to 2011′s critically acclaimed album Ceremonials.

She said: “I decided to rehome a rescue cat because I’m at home quite a lot working on my third album and it will be lovely to have a cat around the house again. “I chose Missus because she was extremely friendly and, straight away, came to sit on my lap where she seemed to make herself very comfortable. “She’ll be a very good writing partner and we’ll probably spend lots of time together.”

Other celebrities to rehome one of Battersea’s cats include comedian Alistair McGowan, presenter Lauren Laverne, children’s author Dame Jacqueline Wilson.
Camberwell-born Florence admitted she had a hard time selecting her favourite moggy. She said: “I always used to see Battersea on my way to school so it was the first place I thought to go to rehome a cat, the only problem is I want to take them all home!”

WWW.ENTERTAINMENTWISE.COM – Florence Welch has been talking about her close friendship with US actress (and Ryan Reynolds’ new wife) Blake Lively, calling the Gossip Girl star her “partner in crime.”

The two girls struck up a friendship after the Florence +  the Machine singer performed onGossip Girl a couple of years ago, and since then the pair have enjoyed lots of nights out.

Florence revealed Blake, who’s fame has only been increased with her recent marriage to Ryan, has even helped her get through high-profile celebrity events such as the annual Met Ball in New York City. “She’s been a really big support when I’m in that big, crazy Met Ball scene – having Blake there to be a partner in crime has been really lovely,” Florence told ESmagazine.

“She’s got such a big heart. She’s far more in the public eye than I am, and she’s a good, grounded wise person for me to get advice from.”
