Bat For Lashes has just debuted her first new song since 2012’s The Haunted Man (not counting a collaboration with electronic producer Jon Hopkins) via Pitchfork. It’s called “Skin Song,” and it will appear on a compilation album titled Body of Songs. It’s scheduled for release in 2015, and the concept of the album surrounds medical science and the human anatomy. Each artist on the album will explore the connection between music and science and the body, and it sounds sort of highbrow and conceptual, but if Bat For Lashes is involved, then it’s probably going to be pretty cool regardless. Anyhow, have a listen to “Skin Song” below.
