Ms Welch’s 2009 debut album will get a deluxe re-release with extra tracks to mark a decade since its first issue.

It’s ten years since Florence + The Machine released their debut album Lungs. The album hit shops on 3 July 2009 and to mark the anniversary, Florence is to reissue the LP with a whole host of extra tracks on 16 August.

The band have whipped up a special collector’s box set that includes a host of unheard songs, B-sides and rarities, which include two unreleased Florence demos called My Best Dress and Donkey Kosh.

The Lungs 10th Anniversary Edition will be available in both digital and physical formats, which include a burgundy vinyl LP, plain LP and cassette.

For super Florence fans, there will be an impressive cloth bound deluxe box set which includes the original Lungs album on pink vinyl, as well as a disc of bonus material that has been put together by Florence herself.
