Bat For Lashes (aka Natasha Khan) released a new album, Lost Girls, in September via AWAL Recordings. Now she has announced some new 2020 North American tour dates. They go down next February. A press release says the shows “will be intimate” and “vocal and electronic synth and piano sets” featuring “a never performed before set of previous Bat For Lashes material and songs from the new album Lost Girls plus a few surprises.” Check out all the dates below.

Previously Khan shared Lost Girls’ first single, “Kids in the Dark” (which was one of our Songs of the Week). Then she shared a video for the track. Khan directed it herself and starred as the album’s main character Nikki Pink, in this case as a vampire stalking a lover, backed by a gang of female vampires. Then she shared the album’s second single, “Feel For You,” which has a strong ‘80s vibe and was #1 on our Songs of the Week list. Then she shared another song from it, “The Hunger,” via a self-directed video for the track (it was one of our Songs of the Week). Which was followed by another Lost Girls song, “Jasmine” (it was also one of our Songs of the Week). Then she shared another song from it, “Desert Man.”

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 previous press release set 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.”

I study at a higher educational institution and am still involved in the project. I am looking for help in writing my thesis. Once I had experience with student work orders. But I didn’t like the service and services. Who has proven sources of quality performers? I need your reviews. Please share, I have little time.
