Bat For Lashes Releases Two Suns Special Edition


Bat For Lashes
Bat For Lashes has released a Special Edition version of her critically acclaimed sophomore album, Two Suns, on Astralwerks Records. Two Suns Special Edition is packed with rare and unreleased studio gems, cover versions, stunning live tracks, demos, exclusive remixes, and a revealing long-form documentary.

Encompassing both an expanded CD and a bonus DVD, the new version of Two Suns includes a 48-minute documentary (entitled Two + Two); following Khan across the globe on the intense personal journey she undertook to create Two Suns. From a behind-the-scenes glimpse into her work in the studio, to the making of her provocative, striking videos, to the evolution of Two Suns' femme fatale character Pearl, Two + Two allows fans to see Khan as never before.

TV on the Radio's Dave Sitek adds an ethereal sheen to the remix of "Sleep Alone," and two different versions of "Daniel" adorn the collection as well - a haunting lo-fi rendition and an earlier incarnation of the song, recorded live during Bat For Lashes' 2008 tour with Radiohead. If the initial release of Khan's sophomore album was any indication of her visual and musical triumph, then its expanded contents confirm now that her achievement has become, in fact, timeless.

Bat For Lashes has confirmed a handful of 2010 tour dates with Coldplay; available here.
