British baroque pop pixie Natasha Khan, better known as Bat For Lashes, releases a new video and a very naked album cover.
The BRIT Award-winning singer and pianist prepares her third album The Haunted Man, and leads it with the equally-haunting first single ‘Laura’.
But most commentators are more interested in the cover art for the album, which features a naked Natasha performing a censorious fireman-carry on a man. It was photographed by artist Ryan McGinley, who also provided the cover art for Sigur Ros’ fifth album Með Suð Í Eyrum Við Spilum Endalaust.
The rudest bits are covered by artful limb placement, but it’s still pretty Not Safe For Work. Check out the cover at Pitchfork and her first single below.
The Haunted Man will be released on October 15 in the UK through Parlophone and EMI.
