Solo artist Natasha Khan, otherwise known as Bat for Lashes, has released a new taster track titled Marilyn from her forthcoming new album The Haunted Man, which is due for Australian release from 12th October. The new track can also be downloaded for free via Amazon, or you can check out the track by streaming below.
This single follows up on her previous track Laura, which was released in July along with a NSFW album cover of her sans clothes and covered by an unidentified man, also in the nude, with Khan carrying him in a fireman’s carry. Like the last track, Marilyn has a certain haunted feeling to it with Khan’s vocals echoing over a mellow synth sound.
According to NME, Khan spent approximately 18 months working on her latest record, with The Haunted Man scheduled for release on October 15 via Parlophone Records. Although there’s no word on when Bat for Lashes will return to Australia to tour her new record, the last time the English singer was in Australia she unveiled another new song while performing at the Sydney Opera House.
