Florence and the Machine have been influenced by hip-hop on their new album.
Guitarist Rob Ackroyd told Gibson: 'Florence's and my taste in music often overlap in harmonius fashion; we're both big fans of hip-hop and American indie. But she's also a big fan of unadulterated pop music, which cuts through me like a knife.'
He also said that they had finished writing the new album.
'Work on the second album has begun with producer Paul Epworth and there is talk of booking out Abbey Road for a month in April or May to record,' he said.
