Late spring? Uh oh.Seems like Bat For Lashes new album will be out in late spring, so let us talk you
through the major news we got in the last period!
A new album was hinted by Natasha when she accepted her Ivor Novello Award last
year, saying " I am writing the new album right now and I'm so excited to be creating a
whole new world!! Cups of tea, piles of books and musical instruments abound. I am
also making some short films which i hope to share with you at some point."
Some have also hinted she may have recruited Beck after their collaboration for
"The Twilight Saga: Eclipse" soundtrack, while the participation of David Kosten,
who produced both Fur & Gold and Two Suns seems to be confirmed.
Interesting facts about the production of the successor of Two Suns were shared
this summer, when Natasha in an interview to pitchfork said she went away to Italy
at the beginning of this year with a bunch of musicians and was working on choral parts
for men. "In Italy, I worked out these male choral parts with this choral master that are
based on ancient intervals and also something like James Blake-- just trying to work out
what those connections are between the past and the present."
While waiting, eager fans can have a taste of Bat For Lashes new sound on youtube, where you can find a few videos of the
Sydney's concerts where they performed a new song, maybe off the new record?
Late spring does not bode well. Two Suns was actually out before Coachella 2009, but she played something closer to home that weekend and didn't come to America until two months later. Unless she does a second year of touring for the next album, I kind of doubt this will ever happen. Of course, stranger things do happen so here's hoping, and if not, at least she'll finally be around next year again

she is amazing live - hopefully they album will be out in time to get her there
YES!! Bat for Lashes 2012, I hope so too!!
EMI Music Hungary leaked that she will be at the Sziget Festival in Budapest in August.
http://szigetnews.com/bat-for-lashes...m-sziget-2012/We wrote a while ago, quoting the EMI Hungary site, that Bat For Lashes will perform at Sziget 2012.
Since the news article has since disappeared from the label’s site, we tried to confirm it with the band. Here’s the answer we got:
[...] Bat for Lashes currently has no confirmed live dates for 2012 and any official announcements relating to any future dates will be posted on the Bat for Lashes website.[...]
Hopefully, a Sziget 2012 date will be confirmed soon.
I'm hearing that Way Out West is another one.
9 JUNE 2012 - ROCK WERCHTER FESTIVAL, BELGIUM - Buy tickets
Bat For Lashes is pleased to announce she'll be performing at this year's

Having not played live in Europe since 2010, Natasha is delighted that she'll be returning this summer with a string of festival shows.
More festival dates will be announced over the coming weeks.
Still no American shows. Waiting for the spring, perhaps?New Album and Tour Announced
It’s been three years since the last Bat for Lashes album, but we can finally reveal the new album ‘The Haunted Man’, will be released on October 15th.
Following a summer of live festival shows and to coincide with the release of the new album, a full UK tour has also been announced for the Autumn.
Tickets for ‘The Haunted Man’ tour go on sale this coming Friday 15th June at 9am.

I imagine that one will do well on vinyl.
Weird how the only Bat for Lashes threads are in rumors.
The lack of attention has always surprised me. Her music is quite unique and her performances are fantastic.

Yeah, new album doesn't disappoint.
Great-sounding BCC session at an hour into this. I'm surprised the album hasn't leaked yet. Come on people, it has to be floating around somewhere.
I grouped it just now.
Loved that album after one listen
This album is great. I really hope she plays Coachella next year.
