Today, Bat For Lashes, aka Natasha Khan, announces select North American tour dates in support of her critically acclaimed new album Lost Girls out now via AWAL Recordings. These shows will be intimate — vocal and electronic synth and piano sets; euphoric, atmospheric and lush, a never performed before set of previous Bat For Lashes material and songs from the new album Lost Girls plus a few surprises. Tickets will be on sale on Friday, November 8 at 10 am local time in all markets. 

Spanning 10 tracks, Lost Girls has been heralded as another diamond in Khan’s incredible catalogue. If her last album, The Bride, was melancholy and mournful, a tone poem of loss and regret, Lost Girls is her mischievous younger sister, widescreen in scope and bursting with Technicolor intensity. It’s an album for driving in the dark; holding hands at sunset; jumping off bridges with vampires; riding your bike across the moon. Within the women of Lost Girls and her character Nikki Pink, Khan unfolds elements of herself; within these songs, we do the same. Filled with gauzy, 80’s-esque power ballads, Iranian-inspired beats, and the sort of epic sonics reserved for film credits rolling up a screen, Lost Girls is a noir, supernatural night-riding adventure, and one of the finest albums in Khan’s rich, varied discography.  

Praise for Lost Girls:
"Natasha Khan’s latest is a synth-pop love letter to the ’80s sci-fi and fantasy films of her youth...Lost Girls is richest when Khan puts her own devilish spin on those sacred texts, like the beats that boil and bubble under the shimmering disco of “Feel For You” or the mutated and masochistic Giorgio Moroder banger “So Good.” - Pitchfork

"With more pronounced new wave influences, Natasha Khan, makes her yearning sound exquisite...Her yearning is uniquely her own, because of the way her voice soars over the synths and the way she commingles hope with depression. It’s masterful and memorable. On Lost Girls, she has come into her own.Her world is burning and she’s willing to go up in flames right along with it." - Rolling Stone

"Lost Girls is probably the best thing Khan has ever done, but it was released with little fanfare in early September, and is still waiting for a cult fanbase to discover it. Go on, go against the grain, and find yourself a new favorite artist today." - UPROXX

"...part classic Los Angeles tale of shimmery sunsets and smoke-tinged air and part Laurel Canyon turn on, tune in, drop out hallucinogenic experience...from the percolating “Desert Man” to “Jasmine,” that nighttime scent of Los Angeles, and a song that could have fit into the definitive and defunct British chart show Top of the Pops in 1983..." - FLOOD

"Khan has always glided through an emotional dreamworld: pristine vocals yoked with nostalgia-pop synths, songs populated by a varied cast of characters, dark, filmic visuals." - The FADER

"Khan creates a bigger, more colorful and immersive - and more important - more danceable pop environment with Los Girls...echoing post-punk drums, shimmering guitars and awkening-vampire-organs...Lost Girls presents some of the most purely entertaining work Khan's ever released...she writer her most straightforward dance-pop in years, tearing a page from '80s synth-pop down to the laser-beam synthesizers and terse guitar rips, all over a shadowy dance-club beat...Lost Girls is Bat for Lashes doing what she does best, with a lighter heart and faster pulse." - Relix

"On Lost Girls, Bat For Lashes (aka Natasha Khan) puts many of her trademarks to good use—booming bass lines, theatrical vocal arrangements, and ’80s synths...Khan’s voice is so beautiful that she could sing pretty much anything and it would still sound like an angel had taken up residence in your headphones..." - BUST

"Inspired by 1980s cinema, Khan’s fifth album reimagines much of the dance-heavy sounds employed during the era, painting an eclectically modern picture via retro-tinged sonics...the project presents a range of innovative material, whereby Bowie-inspired stargazing pop sounds and lushly imaginative lyricism are spread across nearly every track." - HYPEBEAST
