The highly anticipated third LP from Bat For Lashes — The Haunted Man — is due later this month, and today a six-track sampler surfaced online, treating us to three previously unreleased tracks. We’ve previously heard ‘Laura‘, ‘Marilyn‘ and ‘All Your Gold‘, and now you can stream ‘A Wall’, ‘Oh Yeah’ and ‘Winter Fields’. The Haunted Man continues to sound terrific on these new tracks, heading in a more intimate and minimalist direction than 2009’s soaring Two Suns, and I’m pretty confident that this is going to be one of the year’s best albums.
The Haunted Man is out October 23. Listen to a six track album sampler below (via SPIN).
