Bat For Lashes announces new album 'The Dream Of Delphi'

After the rousing response to her much-loved LP 'Lost Girls' in 2019, Bat For Lashes has now made her eagerly-awaited return to announce the details behind her next studio album, arriving in the coming months.

The new full-length 'The Dream Of Delphi' is being previewed by the record's title-track, which comes accompanied by a stunning new Freddie Leyden-directed video, and is set to be released on the 31st May via her new home at Mercury KX.

Speaking about the new offering, she said, “This is the manifesto of the album. It’s like a spell being cast. It’s the conjuring, the manifestation, the drawing-down of Delphi from the ether. This is me calling on her soul. It's about going up into the stars and down into the underworld simultaneously, how celestials and deep guttural sounds can come together, how that reflects the journey I went on. It’s about what happens when you’re stretched physically, mentally, even vaginally! I think it's just humbled me, too, becoming a mother. It’s made me feel more vulnerable than I've ever felt before. But I feel more human, more embodied. I can't escape life by making beautiful things as much as I did. But there's sort of a beauty to my mortality now.”
