Bat For Lashes / The Dream of Delphi

New studio album

Bat For Lashes / The Dream of Delphi new album

Natasha Khan’s Bat For Lashes releases a sixth studio album, The Dream of Delphi, in May.

Described as an “ode to motherhood” the record was created in LA during COVID-19 when Khan had given birth to her daughter Delphi.

The record weaves together 10 song poems, “documenting the polarity of navigating both an exterior world what was seemingly turning upside down, whilst also experiencing the profoundly personal and transformational early moments of mothering Delphi, named after the Greek Oracle, the ancient future teller”.

A couple of tracks from this record were debuted live last summer (notably at Christine and the Queens‘ Meltdown Festival at the Southbank – SDE was there!) and we are told the songs have a personal intimacy and a diary-like quality to these compositions from ‘The Midwives Have Left‘  to writing a ‘Letter To My Daughter‘ and ‘Waking Up‘. You can preview the title track, above.

Natasha has worked with Brad Oberhofer, Mary Lattimore and Jack Falby on this album which will be available on 31 May 2024, via Decca. Unlike the previous two Bat For Lashes albums (Lost Girls and The Bride), there is no box set edition of The Dream of Delphi, but some coloured vinyl editions are available.
