Former Ash/current Bat For Lashes guitarist Charlotte Hatherley’s third full-length, New Worlds, comes out in the UK next month, and it is such a great album, trading in the post-punk leanings of her previous (outstanding) effort The Deep Blue for something a little proggier. “Alexander,” which starts off as a delicate, finger-picked ballad before growing into a frenzied plea to a lover, is the new single from the album, and I hope the release of the track’s attendant video means that the record will see the light of day in the States sometime soon. Clip after the jump.
And just in case you missed “White,” the first single from the album that sounds like the bastard offspring PJ Harvey’s “Dry” and Helium’s “Pat’s Trick,” listen to it here:
