Bat For Lashes “Two Suns” Album Gets Deluxe Treatment

Posted on August 25, 2009 |

All is well for Natasha Khan.

“Two Suns”, her sophomore album released last April, reached #5 on the UK Album
and it’s first single “Daniel” (an homage to Karate Kid’s Daniel LaRusso)
was a top 40 hit.

She just came off another successful north american tour and was nominated
again for the Mercury Prize with good odds on winning this time around.

So what do you when you have all this success?

Re-release your album of course. Usually, these can be considered as cash
grabs by the labels and artists doing the re-releasing but this re-issue
IMHO is well worth the money.

The 3-Disc set will be released in the UK september 7th with an North American
release to be announced soon. Buy it as an import or ask your UK friend to buy
it for ya which is exactly what i’m planning on doing.

What’s the deluxe part of this package you ask?

The bonus disc will include 8 songs, the stripped back version of “Daniel”,
covers of “A Forest” by The Cure and “Use Somebody” by Kings Of Leon,
“Wilderness” which is a most excellent b-side, a remix of “Sleep Alone”
and a few live cuts from the road.

Bonus Disc:

1. Wilderness
2. Sleep Alone (909s in DarkTimes Mix)
3. Daniel (Lo Fi)
4. A Forest (The Cure cover)
5. Use Somebody (Kings of Leon cover)
6. Good Love (live at Shepherd’s Bush Empire, 19 April 2009)
7. Daniel (live on Radiohead tour at Nimes, 14 June 2008)
8. Lonely (live at Koko, 29 October 2007)

What i’m really excited about is the DVD which will contain a 48 minute
shot at varying locations across the world from the Joshua
Tree desert and Big Sur in California, to the streets of New York and
the Welsh countryside giving us an inside look in the recording process
for “Two Suns”.

Here’s a teaser trailer to give you a taste.
