Florence + The Machine performed their newest hit “What Kind Of Man” on this week’s “SNL.” The song is the first single off the band’s newest album, How Big, How Blue, How Beautiful, slated for release on May 29. Earlier, the group sang “Ship To Wreck.” See the video below of Florence + The Machine’s performance of “What Kind Of Man” on “Saturday Night Live.”
“What Kind Of Man” has received both critical and commercial success, with the song landing on several of Billboard’s chart. It reached number 7 on the Hot Rock Songs and Rock Airplay charts, and number one on Billboard’s Adult Alternative Songs chart.
The video for “What Kind Of Man,” deals with a woman’s relationship with one man in particular, but also features lead singer Florence Welch in different shots, alternately fending off men as well as controlling them. Strikingly, Welch goes topless in the music video.
As Gossip Cop reported, this is the third time Florence + The Machine has been the musical guest on “SNL.” The band’s first appearance was when Anne Hathaway hosted in 2010. They returned the very next year to back host Jason Segel. Check out the video below of Florence + The Machine’s performance of “What Kind Of Man” on “SNL,” and tell us what you think.
