Bat for Lashes Shares Tender ‘I Do,’ Hints at First New Album in Four Years
Natasha Khan has shared her first new music under her Bat for Lashes moniker in four years and asked us to save the date for July 1.
Today (Feb. 19), Khan unveiled the gauzy, harp-tinged “I Do,” which you can hear in the video player above. In that same matrimonial spirit, the single artwork features a save the date card for July 1. Underneath, it reads, “Til’ Death Do Us Part,” while a nearby necklace has the inscription “The Bride.” It’s unclear, but likely, the dream-pop singer-songwriter plans to release her first album since 2012’s The Haunted Man at the beginning of July.
While “I Do” serves as Khan’s first music as Bat for Lashes in a while, this past fall, she debuted her psych-folk project Sexwitch and issued a self-titled album of covers. Sexwitch was comprised of Khan, English psych-rock outfit TOY and producer Dan Carey. Perhaps coincidentally, they all collaborated on a song dubbed “The Bride” for a 2012 compilation of Iranian funk, psychedelic and pop covers.
