Natasha Khan and Jon Hopkins have paired up on new track 'Garden's Heart'.
Jon Hopkins is in the middle of a deeply creative spell. Returning with new album 'Immunity' the producer also signalled his intentions to release a number of collaborations.
A single with Wild Beasts' Hayden Thorpe followed, with Jon Hopkins now also stepping into the studio with Natasha Khan. Writing and recording a track for new British film 'How I Live Now' the results are rather marvellous.
With twin talents such as this in tow, the results were never likely to disappoint, but what's emerged is - if anything - more than the sum of its parts.
The film itself covers an imaginary war in 21st century Britain, and as a result 'Garden's Heart' is a brooding, haunting effort. Buoyed by Natasha Khan's exquisite vocal, the production from Jon Hopkins is a sensitive, carefully wrought bedrock for the Bat For Lashes lynchpin to build on.

'How I Live Now' is set to be released on October 4th.
