Bat for Lashes announces new LP
More than three years out from 2009's Two Suns, Natasha Khan's Bat for Lashes will return with The Haunted Man, due October 15 via Parlophone. Given that Florence and the Machine have hit the charts with a sound quite similar to Bat for Lashes' blend of ancient folk mystery and modern electronics, it'll be interesting to see if the new album finds more commercial success stateside than their first two critically-praised but sales-poor LPs. Based on this footage of a new song recorded last year in Sydney, the material is certainly promising.
Bat for Lashes will be playing the European festival circuit this summer. A UK tour is planned for fall, but no North American dates are currently scheduled.
