32-year old Natasha Khan also known as Bat for Lashes has released first track ‘Laura’ from her forthcoming album ‘The Haunted Man’. The singer has also revealed a daring artwork for her album cover where she is standing naked wearing just a necklace and rings, while a young nude man is hanging over her shoulder. A message on Bat For Lashes website read: "Shot by the revered photographer Ryan McGinley, known for his naturalistic imagery, Natasha appears naked and carrying a man around her shoulders".
Known for her eccentric costume and elaborate eye make-up, the singer’s forthcoming album ‘The Haunted Man’ will release on October 15th via Parlophone Records. Meanwhile a European summer show and Autumn Headline tour have been scheduled this year starting September 2nd. The new album is the follow-up to her second album 'Two Suns' released in 2006, which has sold over 250,000 copies and won her an Ivor Novello award for Best Contemporary Song, ‘Daniel’. She was also nominated for Mercury Music Prize and BRIT Awards for this album.
In the past the singer has toured with Coldplay and has worked with Beck.
