Bat For Lashes (aka Natasha Khan) has announced a new album, Lost Girls, and shared its first single, "Kids in the Dark." Lost Girls is due out September 6 via AWAL Recordings. Check out "Kids in the Dark" below, followed by the album's tracklist and over art. In the last week, in the run up to the album announcement, Bat For Lashes also shared some intriguing teaser videos on Instagram and you can watch those below too (we've embedded them in the order they were posted to Instagram, even though that means the story appears out of sequence).

Lost Girls is the follow-up to 2016's concept album The Bride, which came out via Parlophone/Warner Bros. Although in 2018 Khan scored the BBC/Netflix show Requiem, for which she picked up an Ivor Norvello Award.

A press release sets the scene for Lost Girls this way: "If her last album, The Bride, was melancholy and mournful, a tone poem of loss and regret, Lost Girls is her mischievous younger sister, widescreen in scope and bursting with Technicolour intensity. It's an album for driving in the dark; holding hands at sunset; jumping off bridges with vampires; riding your bike across the moon.... Spanning 10 tracks, Lost Girls sees Khan dreaming up her own fully formed parallel universe, creating an off-kilter coming of age film in which gangs of marauding female bikers roam our streets, teenagers make out on car hoods and a powerful female energy casts spells and leave clues for us to follow. The women of Lost Girls are parallel to one of Khan's previous female protagonists, the tough, darkness-driven Pearl, from her 2009 lauded album Two Suns. Within the women of Lost Girls and the character Nikki Pink, Khan unfolds elements of herself; within these songs, we do the same."

Thanks for the information. I like the fact that the internet allows you to get coupons that you really need. Often time’s brand name coupons come as a method to get you to try something you may or may not like.
