'The Bride'

Bat For Lashes is due to release new album 'The Bride' on July 1st.

Natasha Khan recently took part in the Sexwitch project, and intimated that a full studio album would be forthcoming.

Well, she wasn't exaggerating. New album 'The Bride' arrives this summer, and it appears to be a concept album of sorts.

The press note states: "'The Bride' follows the story of a woman whose fiancé has been killed in a crash on the way to the church for their wedding. The Bride flees the scene to take the honeymoon trip alone, resulting in a dark meditation on love, loss, grief, and celebration."

New cut 'In God's House' is online now - check it out below.

Bat For Lashes has announced a series of church shows for 'The Bride', where fans are invited to dress in formal wedding attire. UK dates are as follows:

5 Manchester Manchester Cathedral
14 Brighton St. Georges
16 London Union Chapel
