Bat For Lashes announces new album ‘The Bride’

11.03.16

Bat For Lashes has announced details of her new album 'The Bride'.

Co-produced alongside collaborators Dan Carey, Head, Simone Felice, and Ben Christophers, Natasha Khan will release the follow-up to her 2012 album 'The Haunted Man' (and her Sexwitch album from last year) this summer and is previewed by lead single In God's House.

A press release for the album says that the previously shared song I Do is inspired by a film written and directed by Khan, which will see its premiere at the Tribeca Film Festival in New York City next month. Detailing the concept behind 'The Bride', a first chapter of the story has been issued (see photo below) as well as a description of the album that says:

"'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."
