Listen: Florence and JoshHomme cover Johnny Cash andJune Carter

Florence and the Machine’s MTV Unplugged appearance, set to air later this week, will feature an appearance from Queens of the Stone Age frontman Josh Homme as The Man in Black – well, as a man in a black coat.

Homme joins the group to perform a cover of Johnny Cash and June Carter’s 1963 duet Jackson, which has now been posted on Florence’s YouTube channel. The group also covered Otis Redding’s Try A Little Tenderness, so there’s a chance we could be hearing a little soul from Florence when she tours next month.

MTV Unplugged tracklist:

Only If For A Night
Drumming Song
Cosmic Love
Breaking Down
Never Let Me Gov
Try A Little Tenderness
No Light No Light
Jackson (w/ Josh Homme)
What The Water Gave Me
Dog Days Are Over
Shake It Out

Beastly cover.

Good to see Josh holding his own next to such a strong voice. Good to see Florence holding her own next to a man.

I guess I have to learn to like Florence now since she's on Josh's cool list...

Are we sure Josh Homme isn't dropping off the cool list?

Like any good hipster, he stops liking things once he thinks they are too popular.

He also thinks he's not a hipster.

He's probably come up with a really lame insult name for her, too

"FLATULENCE AND THE MACHINE LOL"

Will we be seeing Davey with a slicked back hairstyle and a duffle coat soon?

I think you will find that that is a peacoat, not a duffle coat.

That sure is a beautiful 'stach/mullet combo he's got happening there though.
