Florence Welch is taking a stand to get what she deserves.
The Florence + the Machine singer demanded co-production credit on her latest album “High as Hope”, according to Refinery29.
The new credit is in addition to the musician’s vocal and songwriting duties on the album, reflecting the work she had to do due to recording in a less-than-stellar studio.
“It didn’t have that much [recording equipment],” Welch told BBC1, forcing her to co-produce with Emile Haynie.
Welch added that being part of the production team gave her “freedom to experiment with building my sound.”
The 31-year-old also admitted that she probably should have requested the credit before. “I always sort of co-produced,” she explained. “I didn’t know that I could ask for the title!”
Credit for co-production isn’t just about recognition, though. It helps her make more money from the music she puts out.
