Florence + The Machine MTV UnpluggedFlorence & The Machine will release their performance on the venerable, once-clasic MTV Unpluged series in a bevy of packages on April 9. She is taking pre-orders through her own online store, adorably called the Flotique, and fans who pre-order from the Flotique get a poster as an added bonus.

I don't know about you, but that made my day.

This is Florence's first official live release although iTunes has issued a couple of exclusive live performances through their digital music store (her set for the London iTunes Festival as well as set in SoHo).

The 11-song set features songs from her amazing debut Lungs and its completely brilliant followup Ceremonials, as well as a cover of "Try A Little Tenderness" and the Johnny & June Cash classic "Jackson," the latter for which she is joined by Queens Of The Stone Age frontman Josh Homme.

I love it when good things happen to good people and I consider this a personal gift from Florence to me, a makeup of sorts for not scheduling a show on the Ceremonials tour near me. I'm having one of these and you should, too. I took a peek at Amazon and right now they've got the title listed as an import-only release and don't have a lot of details. I'm certain they'll soon have updated information on their site and so will all the other usual suspects, but I might just go ahead and pre-order from the Flotique. Did I mention there's a poster involved?
