Well, well, well, what do we have here - news that our favourite indie blossom Florence Welch (of Florence and the Machine) is going to hit the studio with young hip-hop phenom Drake? This could be...neat.

I suppose it seems only natural that the rising subculture stars inevitably pair with the mainstream sensations to send fans and media into a feeding frenzy - but I have to say, this little collab isn't one I expected. It should be interesting to hear Drake's plain monotone toppled by Florence's pounding pipes - and as long as we don't have another "Airplanes" duet situation coming our way, I'll keep an open and eager-to-hear stance on this one.

Bring it on, you two!

Check out a little preview of what the pair will sound like together - a clip of Florence joining Drizzy on stage in London, where she sang what normally are Alicia Keys' vocals on "Fireworks":
