Bat For Lashes has shared a new song, Letter To My Daughter.

Opening with a flurry of synths that usher in ethereal vocals, the track builds to a lush string arrangement. It marks the second single from Brit Award and Mercury Prize nominee Natasha Khan's new album, 'The Dream Of Delphi', which arrives on May 31.

The new LP features the singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist's most personal material to date, exploring themes of motherhood. A companion film has been made with creative director and choreographer Alexandra Green, with the new song's accompanying Freddie Leyden-directed video serving as the second chapter. It follows the clip for the previously released title track, the record's opener. Khan commented:

"This title is pretty self-explanatory. If I was on my deathbed, it’s what I’d say to Delphi to give her some sense of being at home in the world, the galaxy, the universe we live in. Before Delphi was born I started writing her a book of letters, inspired by Maya Angelou’s book of the same name, Letter To My Daughter. It documents a very strange but magical year, full of special memories and historic worldly moments.

"This ride of life is always continuing and we’re all just energy moving from one form into another, always. She’s also just part of an echo, ancestral line or spiral in the cosmos, like the spiral that I saw in her soft hair when she was a baby. She is part of something much greater than any of us individually; she comes from the past and she comes from the future."

Khan, whose last studio album was 2019's 'Lost Girls', will embark on her first headline UK tour in five years in June. Tickets are on sale now.
