We didn’t think we could be more obsessed with ‘Morning Elvis,’ but we were wrong. The song, originally released by Florence + The Machine in May 2022, just got a major collaboration… Ethel Cain! The two vocal powerhouses came together for an incredible performance, and now, it’s ours! The song was recorded during the Denver stop of Florence + The Machine’s Dream Fever Tour.
‘Morning Elvis’ is the chill, effervescent rock song we needed in our life. One of the subtle standouts of Florence + The Machine’s new album, Dance Fever, we’re excited it got the star treatment with Ethel’s voice. Both singers bring such a deep, dark, unique tone to their own music that it only makes sense that they’d mesh so well! Their beautifully haunting harmonies matched each other perfectly!
‘Morning Elvis’ is a song about the power of performance of rock and roll tragedy and transcendence. And it’s a sign of a truly special artist when they make a cover their own. When Hayden sang this song it felt like it was hers, she really gave it that outlaw energy, like witches of the Wild West. I even threw more lines at her on the day because her tone and cadence was so perfect I wanted to hear more. And she did not miss a line even with only an hour to rehearse. I truly think I have found a kindred spirit aesthetically and artistically. And now every show I sing ‘Morning Elvis’ with an Ethel Cain inflection
