Bat for Lashes

Bat for Lashes returns this fall with The Haunted Man, her first new album in three years and the first new music we've heard from Natasha Khan since her duet with Beck on the Twilight: Eclipse soundtrack in 2010. It comes out October 21 and that's the provocative cover art above. You can stream the first released track from the album below, the stripped-down (no pun intended) piano balled "Laura." Starting Tuesday, July 24, if you pre-order the album on iTunes, you get an instant download of the song.

Nice try, Natasha, but Friends already went topless at a recent performance, proving time and again that they're the true innovators of independent music.

I vaguely recall her looking good in the 'daniel' video, wonder if it's just the unflattering haircut

You are fuckin cracked. Friends don't have an ounce of talent compared to this amazing artist.

I fail to jump onto this bandwagon... the music she makes is FLACCID. No staying power whatsoever.

I hear she's teaming up with the iPods on this one. That should lend her new album some real diversity!

She's hot. And talented. Not sure why anybody needs to comment otherwise.

She looks like a stretched out version of that screaming females chick...

Embarrassed to admit I laughed at 5:41.
