Bat For Lashes – I Do [New Single]


Bat For Lashes -I Do

Natasha Khan has released her first Bat For Lashes material in four years, and asked fans to save the date of 1 July.

Accompanied by nuptial-themed imagery – a Save the Date card, strip of photos, red and white roses, and a necklace inscribed with the words ‘The Bride’ – and the soft pull of harp strings and Khan’s serene lullaby coos, I Do is every inch the romantic serenade and arrives five months after the Mercury Award-nominated singer-songwriter unveiled her psych-folk project Sexwitch.

In an interview with Pitchfork last year, Khan confirmed that a new Bat For Lashes album was coming in 2016, and explained that it would be linked to a feature film that she was writing a 15 minute short for.

“It’s about a bride, the morning of her wedding, being disturbed by subterranean weird feelings, message and signs. On the way to her wedding, something really crazy happens, and you’re left wondering whether she’s gonna go through with it. It’s all about redemption of grief, putting ghosts to bed before you can move into a fully committed relationship. It’s very countryside, weird, English, surreal.”

The last Bat For Lashes album The Haunted Man came out back in 2012 and featured the singles Lilies and Laura. Catch I Do below.
