Florence And The Machine For Doctor Who?

'Lungs' to be re-issued

Florence And The Machine singer Florence Welch could yet appear on Doctor Who.

A bed room dreamer, Florence And The Machine singer Florence Welch is now instantly recognisable. The band have enjoyed enormous success, scoring several hit singles and a massive debut album.

However Florence Welch could be set to reach new heights of fame with the singer ear-marked for a role in Doctor Who. The show has a history of guest stars, and the flame haired performer could be due to make a cameo.

Speaking to the Press Association, current Doctor Matt Smith explained that he would love for Florence Welch to appear. “Florence from Florence And The Machine – I’d quite like her to do one.”

Strangely, the current Doctor Who assistant Karen Gillan is also a red head. Continuing, Matt Smith also suggested controversial Manchester United forward Eric Cantona as a possible guest star.

Meanwhile, Florence And The Machine are preparing to re-issue their debut album ‘Lungs’. The band recently contributed ‘Heavy In Your Arms’ to the soundtrack of the film ‘Twilight Saga: Eclipse’.

‘Between Two Lungs’ will contain new sleeve art, an introduction from Florence Welch and a ten track bonus disc. In addition to this, ‘Heavy In Your Arms’ is set to be released as a single on the same day.

“‘Heavy In Your Arms’ I suppose is about the weight of love, and how sometimes it can be a burden between two people,” Welch told fans on her official site. “I felt this was a strong theme in the Twilight series. Is someone being rescued or are they being condemned? And is the love you carry bringing you down?”

Florence & The Machine are set to release ‘Between Two Lungs’ on November 15th.
