On July 3, 2009 the world was officially introduced to Florence + The Machine by way of the band's debut album Lungs. In the decade that's followed, the world has promptly fallen in love with the English sextet as they released four albums of ethereal folk rock. To celebrate the 10th anniversary of the record that started it all, Florence Welch and company announced that they'd be re-releasing their breakthrough album as a limited edition box set and colored vinyl.
"This 10th anniversary edition is a cloth bound deluxe box set featuring the original Lungs album on coloured vinyl, and an LP of bonus material, hand-picked by Florence Welch and never before available on vinyl," a description reads on the band's official website. "This material includes three previously unreleased demo tracks, a rare acoustic version of ‘My Boy Builds Coffins’, a cover of ‘Oh! Darling’ Live at Abbey Road and a number of B sides & rarities. Also included within the box are postcards and inserts, showcasing previously unseen images from the Lungs era."
The box set will be released on August 16 and can be pre-ordered here. Florence + The Machine also shared two of the previously unreleased demos, "Donkey Kosh" and "My Best Friend."
