the start of Florence’s Rabbit Heart (Raise It Up) apparently samples a portion of a Gang Gang Dance track. No acknowledgement appeared on the first run of albums but after the band took action, Florence admitted the mistake, is paying the band royalties from the song, and the second run of Lungs will now reference GGD.
All of which just goes to prove how awesome Florence is.
“It also amuses me that in the presence of a gay man, a straight man might feel so uncomfortable because he’s suddenly the possible subject of someone’s sexual desire; something that women tend to suffer from all the time. Not all women feel as uncomfortable with it, but certainly, we’re encouraged to think it’s flattering when we’re gawked at and drooled over and objectified, rather than being creeped the fuck out by it. Of course, when the same thing might happen to a man, then they make a military law out of it.”—
