Bat For Lashes – “Skin Song”

It’s hard to say who even thinks up ideas like this, but the forthcoming compilation Body Of Songs will collect examples of different artists singing about different parts of the body. The concept has something to do with medical science, but “Skin Song,” the contribution from Bat For Lashes, doesn’t exactly give off the impression that Natasha Khan wrote it while leafing through an anatomy textbook. Still, any excuse for a song like this to exist is a good one. It’s a hushed, beautiful song about relating to your own body. Listen to it below.

Body Of Songs will be out in 2015, and it’ll also feature people like Goldie and Ghostpoet.
