Bat For Lashes - Laura

Yes it's true, Bat For Lashes released a new single and video.  It's been over three years since Natasha Khan's last album, Two Suns, but the wait is finally over.  Bat For Lashes' third album, The Haunted Man, is due out on October 15 and the first single is "Laura".  The song is a burning piano ballad that's equally as stunning as some of her previous wonders, such as "Sad Eyes" or "The Big Sleep".  It's led by a somber piano line and Natasha's soaring vocals, "Laura, you're more than a superstar".  Match that with its visual counterpart and you have love at first listen.  Watch "Laura" below.

The Haunted Man will be released October 23 in the US, via Capitol, and October 15 in the UK on Parlophone/EMI.  You can pre-order the record here.
