Bat For Lashes – The Making Of Her New Video ‘Daniel’

Bat For Lashes‘ new single ‘Daniel’ is the lead single from Natasha Khan’s rather excellent second album ‘Two Suns’ (due April 6). It finds her coming over all ‘Tango In The Night’-era Fleetwood Mac, and is accompanied by the kind of enigmatic, atmospheric video we’ve come to expect from Natasha Khan.

After the jump we have an exclusive clip that takes you behind-the-scenes on the video shoot. In it, Swedish director Johnan Renck explains ‘Daniel”s central theme of teenage infatuation – and confirms that the song is autobiographical: Miss Khan’s first crush was indeed named Daniel.



Incidentally, you can win the hoodie that Natasha Khan wears in this clip. Head here to enter.
