Watch: Florence and the Machine delivers dramatic performance of ‘Patricia’ on Corden

A stripped down tune about artist Patti Smith

On Tuesday night, Florence and the Machine visited The Late Late Show with James Corden where she took center stage to perform a dramatic, evocative version of “Patricia” off of her latest album High As Hope.

The third single off the album, “Patricia,” is a tribute to artist, poet, and musician Patti Smith, who Welch considers to be her “North Star.” The slowed down performance is powerful, and revolves around Welch’s booming vocals with delicate accompanying instrumentals and pounding drums.
