** According to WordOfGod, Florence loves the subject of drowning. Mentioned by description in ''Ceremonials'' liner notes, she's fond of the ''jumping off the edge and "enveloping"'' feeling which drowning often described as being. She once said that as a child, she dived to the bottom of a swimming pool and, for a moment, felt like she could breathe, and she's been trying to recreate the feeling ever since. This is said to be similar to her relationship to music. It came to the point that the main producer for ''How Big, How Blue, How Beautiful'', Markus Dravs, forbade her from writing ''any'' songs about water. [[note]]''Queen of Peace'' does mention a boat.[[/note]\\

They contributed the song "Heavy In Your Arms" to the ''Literature/{{Twilight}} Saga: Eclipse'' soundtrack, and [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ROtBbOcdFxo performed a song for]] ''Film/SnowWhiteAndTheHuntsman''. One of their songs were also used in Series/{{Revenge}}'s finale, to great acclaim, and in a season finale of Series/{{Warehouse 13}}. Florence contributed her vocals to "Sweet Nothing" by Music/CalvinHarris, and he remixed "Spectrum" for radio. Both charted #1 in the UK. Most recently, the song "Over The Love" was made for Film/TheGreatGatsby movie soundtrack, which appears to be a song from Daisy's perspective. Meanwhile, her cover version of Ben E. King's "Stand By Me" will be used in the upcoming video game VideoGame/FinalFantasyXV.

* SomethingCompletelyDifferent: Florence has recently stated her interest in dabbling with dance music; in 2012, CalvinHarris remixed "Spectrum" (giving Florence her first UK #1), and she returned the favor by lending vocals to his single "Sweet Nothing".
