Bat For Lashes unveils new song ‘Skin Song’ – listen

The track is taken from a new compilation called 'Body Of Songs'

Bat For Lashes has shared a new song, called ‘Skin Song’. You can stream it at Consequence Of Sound.

The track is taken from a new compilation called ‘Body Of Songs’, which also features Ghostpoet and Goldie, amongst others. You can watch a trailer for the project at the bottom of the page. The album is due for release in 2015.

The compilation is the result of a coming-together of medical experts, such as pathologists, neurologists, stem cell researchers and hospital surgeons, with a range of British artists. The experts gave the musicians lessons about individual parts of the anatomy and then asked them to create a song based on their chosen organ or body part.

‘Skin Song’ follows another new Bat For Lashes track, ‘Under The Indigo Moon’, recorded in collaboration with Beck. The track forms part of the soundtrack to Natasha Khan’s short film of the same name. ‘The Haunted Man’ was the singer’s last full album release, in 2012.
