She provided the soundtrack for an Oscar winner's movie. Welch provided the soundtrack for "Eat Pray Love," the 2010 film starring Oscar winner Julia Roberts. The lyrics for "Dog Days Are Over" were said to perfectlyparallel the plot of the movie, which chronicles the travels of a recent divorcée on a quest to find peace and happiness. "For me, 'Dog Days' symbolizes apocalyptic euphoria, chaotic freedom and running really, really fast with your eyes closed," Welch told USA Today.

She is inspired by spirits. Welch has said the band's soon-to-be released album will reflect everything that's happened on her rapid rise to fame. But she's also taking inspiration from far different, more unusual places. "There's a song on it that's inspired by a visit [from] my dead grandmother — like, I had a really, really vivid dream about her and, um, she was giving me advice in this dream," she said. "And it was really emotional, and I woke up crying. And there's one song that's inspired by that experience."

Tune "Good Morning America" on Friday, June 24,to watch Florence and the Machine perform live in New York City's Central Park!
