Hailing from London, England, Natasha Khan is a talented singer-songwriter and multi-
instrumentalist who released her third studio album The Haunted Man this past October. Adopting the stage name, Bat for Lashes, Khan's
third album is riding on a wave of momentum that is clearly setting her up to an
international path of success in the music world.
In its first week, the album debuted at number six on the UK Albums Chart and sold approximately an impressive 13,334 copies. The
album's debut single "Laura" performed just as well in the UK Singles chart. Having received prestigious Mercury Prize nomination for her previous studio albums Fur and Gold (Parlophone Records) and Two Suns (Parlophone Records), her name has become a bubbling household name in the United Kingdom.
A passionate songstress from a modest upbringing, Khan worked diligently through college
and work, at a card-packing factory, to be recognized a serious emerging artist.
Eventually, signing with Echo records, Khan began to enchant the UK with her soothing and
heart-warming voice. Khan's unique musical style led her songs to be featured in a variety
of commercials, video games and even the Twilight Saga: Eclipse soundtrack. Additionally,
Khan has even collaborated and toured with Coldplay following a one-off gig in London in
early 2010. Lately, Khan has been working on promoting The Haunted Man and its 2nd single
"All Your Gold" which was released on October 3.
