Four years since The Haunted Man, Bat For Lashes returns with a simple and sweet song, backed by a harp and tied up in lush strings.

It's been four years since The Haunted Man, Bat For Lashes' dark and shimmering third album, a "Technicolor canvas with shades of gray" as our own Stephen Thompson wrote in 2012. Last year saw the British musician Natasha Khan collaborate with TOY and producer Dan Carey for Sexwitch's self-titled debut, but now Khan returns as Bat For Lashes with the simple and sweet "I Do," backed by a harp and tied up in lush strings. The single's artwork, mimicking a save-the-date card, offers the date July 1 and the italic script 'Til Death Do Us Part, which could either be the album's new title or an invitation to the saddest, prettiest wedding ever.
