Bat For Lashes has shared the video for new song ‘Sunday Love’.
The song previews her new album ‘The Bride’, which is due out on July 1. ‘Sunday Love’ is the third song previewed from the album, following ‘I Do’ and ‘In God’s House’.
Bat For Lashes mainstay Natasha Khan directed the desert-themed video for ‘Sunday Love’ with John DeMenil, director of the documentary Max Ernst Hanging.The video sees Khan’s bride character order a driver to stop on a Californian highway.
‘The Bride’ is Khan’s first album as Bat For Lashes since ‘The Haunted Man’ in 2012, although she released a self-titled album as Sexwitch in 2015 with Toy and Franz Ferdinand/Kylie Minogue producer Dan Carey.
Carey co-produces ‘The Bride’ alongside Head, Simon Felice of The Felice Brothers and singer-songwriter Ben Christophers. ‘The Bride’ is a concept album which, according to its press release, tells the story of a woman whose fiancé has been killed in a crash on the way to their wedding. The bride then decides to take their honeymoon trip alone, leading to songs of “love, loss, grief and celebration”.
A brief Bat For Lashes tour of churches in London, Brighton and Manchester earlier in May saw many in the audience dress in formal wedding attire at Khan’s request. She will play at Glastonbury and End Of The Road festivals. Wedding attire optional.
