Solo artist Natasha Khan, otherwise known as Bat for Lashes, has a new video and some exciting new cover art for her upcoming third studio LP The Haunted Man. The cover art, pictured above and sourced from NME, depicts Khan sans clothes covered only by an unidentified young man, also naked, who Khan holds aloft in a fireman’s carry.
As for Bat for Lashes’ new tune, Laura is the first song lifted from The Haunted Man. The song is a gentle yet powerful ballad, not too dissimilar to the recent singles of Lana Del Rey, who is currently in the country for this weekend’s Splendour in the Grass.
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.
