[WATCH] BAT FOR LASHES: ‘Laura’

Bat For Lashes has released the first single from her much-anticipated third LP The Haunted Man, the follow-up to 2009’s excellent Two Suns. Natasha Khan released the single ‘Laura’ and then its video in quick succession today, as well as the album’s NSFW artwork which you can check out below. ‘Laura’ is a beautiful, mournful piano ballad which offers reassurances to a partying friend who has been left behind by her grown-up friends, and the theatrical video is equally beautiful. The Haunted Man is due October 23, and its provocative cover was shot by shot by photographer Ryan McGinley.

Listen to/watch the video for ‘Laura’ below, and check out the album cover for The Haunted Man (via Stereogum).

As a bonus, check out pro-shot footage from a recent Bat For Lashes show in Portland, featuring four new songs (via COS).
