Bat for Lashes will release the single 'All Your Gold' on 29th October, the second official track to be taken from the already acclaimed third album The Haunted Man, out 15th October on Parlophone.
Natasha Khan returned amid a flurry of excitement this summer with a string of festival appearances and the devastating piano ballad 'Laura'. The beautiful ode to a friend who's lost their way, has been embraced by music fans across the board after getting premiered and played twice in the same show by Zane Lowe and support from Nick Grimshaw and Fearne Cotton on Radio 1, then A-listed on 6 Music and compared to Scott Walker and Leonard Cohen no less, by Mojo.
The acclaim is sure to continue with new single 'All Your Gold', with its mix of electronic beats, echo-laden synths, strings and sudden bursts of electric guitar. The catchy chorus is surely one of the most danceable Bat for Lashes track to date, yet the lyrics are tinged with melancholy 'I let him take all my gold / And hurt me so bad / That now for you / I have nothing left of all my gold'
Having performed stand out sets at Latitude, Bestival and iTunes festival this summer, Natasha has announced a full UK tour for Autumn, playing The Forum in London on 29 and 30 October.
