Natasha Khan and Jon Hopkins unite for new single 'Garden's Heart' - watch

Bat For Lashes star made her directorial debut with the video for the single, which stars actress Saoirse Ronan

Bat For Lashes' Natasha Khan and producer Jon Hopkins have teamed up for a new single called 'Garden's Heart'.

The track is taken from the soundtrack to forthcoming British film [i]How I Live Now[i], which is directed by directed by The Last King Of Scotland's Kevin Macdonald. The song will be released on digital download on October 7 – two days after the film opens in cinemas.

Khan made her directorial debut with the video starring The Lovely Bones actress Saoirse Ronan, who also appears in [i]How I Live Now[i]. Watch it above.

Hopkins and Khan wrote and recorded 'Garden's Heart' during a two-day stint at Hopkins' studio in Bow, east London earlier this year (2013) after Macdonald was keen for the pair to collaborate on a track for the film. Hopkins also scored the film and the soundtrack, which includes tracks by Daughter, Nick Drake, Fairport Converntion and Amanda Palmer. The full soundtrack will be released in November.

Hopkins isn't the only artist Khan has teamed up with this summer. Last month (July) she released a joint single with Toy called 'The Bride'.
