The multiple Mercury-nominee and recent Ivor Novello winner has shared details of the follow-up to 2016’s acclaimed ‘The Bride‘, with her fifth studio album arriving on September 6.

“It’s an album full of romance,” reads a statement about the record, “an homage to Los Angeles where the album was recorded, to being a kid in the 80’s, to films that touched and changed her life.”

Khan has been teasing the new release over the last week. In several posts, Khan has shared clips from a video which is seemingly about a missing girl. In one post, Khan asks fans to call a hotline which asks you to leave a message a lost girl called Nikki; in another, she appears to have shared a snippet of some dreamy new music.
