Watch: Bat For Lashes - “Sunday Love” Video
The Bride Due Out July 1 via Parlophone/Warner Bros.
Bat For Lashes (aka Natasha Khan) is releasing a new album, The Bride, on July 1 via Parlophone/Warner Bros. Previously she had shared "I Do" and "In God's House" (as well as the video for "In God's House"). Now Khan has shared another song from the album, "Sunday Love," via its video. It features Khan in a wedding dress on a desert highway as she stops a car featuring a leather jacket clad man. Then things get a touch strange at the end. Khan co-directed the video with John DeMenil. Watch it below.
The Bride is a concept album driven by a narrative about a woman whose fiancé is killed in crash on the way to the church. As a press release describes, "The Bride flees the scene to take the honeymoon trip alone, resulting in a dark meditation on love, loss, grief, and celebration." Khan wrote the album as a soundtrack to a feature film she has in mind and it was also inspired by a short film, also entitled, "I Do," that she wrote and directed and is making its debut at the Tribeca Film Festival in New York this April. Khan recorded the album in an old house in Woodstock, NY, where she built a studio and lived and recorded for two months. Simone Felice of Felice Bros co-produced the album with Khan.
The Bride is the follow-up to 2012's The Haunted Man. Although last year Khan teamed up with producer Dan Carey and the psych-rock band TOY to form SEXWITCH, who released their self-titled debut album last September. SEXWITCH featured six covers of songs by artists from different countries, including two songs each from Iran and Morocco and one song each from Thailand and America. Khan and TOY first collaborated in 2013 for a cover of "The Bride" by Iranian musician Amir Rassaei.
