Natasha Khan, the spectral songstress better known as Bat for Lashes, is set to preview parts of her as-yet-unannounced and as-yet-untitled third album at an intimate U.K show on June 13 -- and then will hit the road for a series of European festivals appearances.

According to NME, the club gig is Khan's first show in her native England in more than a year. Tickets for the Cambridge Junction performance went on sale today (May 4).

After a 2010 spent on the road in support of the brilliant dread-pop album 'Two Suns,' Khan had a performance-light 2011, playing one set of gigs, all in Australia. She wanted to "take more time" with the next album, and indeed she has -- her only other major activity was a Beck collaboration for the 'Twilight' soundtrack, the enchanting 'Let's Get Lost.'

Fans have been in wait for a follow up to 'Two Suns,' in which the London-born singer donned the alter-ego of Pearl, a crystalline wraith that rocked and weeped and wailed, forging the best combination of  existential dread and dancefloor beats since Depeche Mode — whom she covered for a Gucci ad.

Her third record has been in the oven for a while now. We're dreading its arrival — in a very good way.
