Bat For Lashes - aka multi-instrumentalist and visual artist Natasha Khan - will release her latest album, The Bride, via Parlophone (Warner Music NZ) on the 1st July.
Lead track, ‘I Do’ premiered last month to rapturous response. The album’s second preview, the foreboding synth-driven ‘In God’s House’, continues with the mysterious narrative and can be heard HERE.
The Bride follows the story of a woman whose fiancé has been killed in a crash on the way to the church for their wedding. The Bride flees the scene to take the honeymoon trip alone, resulting in a dark meditation on love, loss, grief, and celebration. The Bride is Khan’s most ambitious work to date, sonically and visually incorporating an entire world inhabited by The Bride, along with the characters and places she encounters on the way.
Inspired by a short film Khan wrote and directed entitled I Do, making its debut at this year’s Tribeca Film Festival in NYC in April, The Bride was created over the course of 18 months across London, Los Angeles, and Brighton.
Conceived and produced by Natasha Khan, she enlisted a host of collaborators including Simone Felice, Dan Carey, Head and Ben Christophers.
