Florence + The Machine have joined forces with Christine And The Queens for a playlist “celebrating strong, inspiring women” – check it out below.

The London band are due to continue their US tour in support of ‘High As Hope‘ this evening (May 15). Hitting the Concord Pavilion amphitheatre in California, Florence Welch and co. will be joined by support act Christine And The Queens.

With Chris – real name Héloïse Letissier – scheduled to perform three shows on the stint, she has also collaborated with frontwoman Welch on a new playlist.

Titled ‘Florence + Chris: High As Hope Tour playlist’, the collection draws inspiration from female musicians. “More than excited to join Florence on her tour, starting from tonight!” tweeted Chris. “We collaborated on a playlist celebrating strong, inspiring women.”

Included on the playlist are the likes of Kate Bush‘s ‘Wuthering Heights’, Garbage‘s ‘Only Happy When It Rains’, and Robyn‘s ‘Missing U’. Newer acts such as Let’s Eat Grandma, SZA, Charli XCX, and Angel Olsen are also featured.

Florence’s own single ‘Hunger’ is also on the list, as is Christine And The Queens’ 2018 track ‘Doesn’t Matter’.
