Bat for Lashes Covers Rihanna's "We Found Love + 6 Tracks From 'The Haunted Man'

A low-key version of the song 'We Found Love' by Rihanna and Calvin Harris was recorded by Bat for Lashes for Zane Lowe's BBC Radio 1 show.
The singer's third studio LP, 'The Haunted Man', is released on October 23 and, in a recent interview with Spinner, she admitted that the fraught creative sessions for the album had made her feel "desperate".

She said: "I felt desperate about the record quite a lot of the time – that it wasn't coming easily. I almost lost my way. Maybe the hardest records are the best in the end. But this record definitely made me bleed for it."


to listen to 6 songs from 'The Haunted Man'.

I only listened briefly at work and I wasn't paying full attention, but it seemed good on the first listen. I didn't love Two Suns, but I can already tell I will enjoy this more.

I'm digging the new album, it's not perfect but it's still really good. 'Rest Your Head' is my jam!

I listened to the new album yesterday and it's pretty nice, but I don't see myself listening to it much in future.

i LOVE the new album. idk it sounds more personal and intimate to me than 'fur and gold' or 'two suns'

I'll have to listen to this a couple more times before I can make a ruling. But I adore her cover of Use Somebody.

I was going to make this post after the debate. I'm not feeling the new album. Maybe I need to listen through it again. idk :(

I love Haunted Man though.

i think its a grower
wheresandrae 12th-Oct-2012 03:56 am (UTC)
ia i tried twice and I barely feel like going back to it
liselaime 12th-Oct-2012 03:09 am (UTC)
I like the style of the cover, but it's a little pitchy.
oblika_farika 12th-Oct-2012 03:10 am (UTC)
the entire album is really great
the title track is my favorite, i think. it's a grower album for sure.
beck_rocks 12th-Oct-2012 03:26 am (UTC)
has her new album cover been posted? it's iconic.
wheresandrae 12th-Oct-2012 03:55 am (UTC)
the album was boring on the first two listens tbh
dirtyknife 12th-Oct-2012 04:23 am (UTC)
Really liking it so far. It's a little more stripped down and personal, but still solid. But I can tell it's going to be ~polarizing just like every album is when an artist decides to do something a little different than they have in the past.
