Listen to Bat for Lashes’ new track, “Desert Man”

‘Lost Girls’ arrives later this week.

Bat for Lashes—aka Natasha Khan—has shared “Desert Man,” another cut off her upcoming album Lost Girls.

The UK singer-songwriter and Sexwitch vocalist’s newest offering is a dreamy synth pop banger filled with anthemic drums and her resonant voice. “It’s hard to get high with you / And not go along with, it’s so long too / Take it slow, desert man,” she commands.

According to an interview with the Guardian, the concept of Khan’s upcoming album Lost Girls was based on a screenplay she wrote that was influenced by the ’80s horror-comedy film The Lost Boys.


“It was heavily influenced by ’80s children’s films and vampire films, many set in Portland and California. But as the songs progressed, I felt like I was writing the film soundtrack,” Khan explained.

Khan previously released the Lost Girls tracks “Feel for You” and “The Hunger,” and dropped a video for the single “Kids in the Dark.” The album arrives in full on September 6 via AWAL.
