Bat For Lashes confirms new album ‘The Bride’ and shares ‘In God’s House’ video

Album will be released on July 1

Bat For Lashes has confirmed details of her new album release, as well as sharing a video for her track ‘In God’s House’.

Natasha Khan previously unveiled the song ‘I Do’ and hinted at her forthcoming album, which has now been confirmed to be called ‘The Bride’.

‘The Bride’ follows 2012 album ‘The Haunted Man’ and her recent Sexwitch collaboration with Toy. It will be released on July 1.


Listen to new song ‘In God’s House’ below:

A press release states that the album “follows the story of a woman whose fiancé has been killed in a crash on the way to the church for their wedding. The Bride flees the scene to take the honeymoon trip alone, resulting in a dark meditation on love, loss, grief, and celebration”.

The album was written to coincide with I Do, a short film written and directed by Khan that will premiere at New York’s Tribeca Film Festival in April.
