It’s been a long time since we heard from the lovely Bat For Lashes, but she has returned in the best possible way with Laura, the first single to be taken from The Haunted Man album, due for release on October 15th. It’s breathtakingly beautiful ballad, what a gorgeous voice. We eagerly anticipate the album.
The album cover for The Haunted Man has also just been revealed and it’s quite the shocker, who fancies having a guess at the meaning behind this one?
On October 15th, Bat For Lashes will release her third album The Haunted Man - and it’s about damn time! The follow up to 2009′s Two Suns drops via Parlophone right in the middle of a Summer/Fall tour through the U.K. Let’s flash back to my favorite track and video, Daniel.
Bat for Lashes virgins should also check out the fantastic debut Fur and Gold which features the dark + sultry What’s A Girl To Do.
