New Bat For Lashes – “Daniel (Lo Fi Version)”

Natasha Khan’s gorgeous new CD Two Suns comes with a bonus MP3 you can download from a special website. Once your disc is inserted, head to, give them all your info, and the gift from Pearl is yours to keep. The song is a Lo Fi Version of “Daniel,” the song-of-the-year contender that at once evokes Kate Bush and Ralph Macchio. It’s a stripped and chillier reworking of the single and if you own the CD it’s worth tracking down. But the rest of you don’t have to miss out. Over the weekend, Natasha performed the version with Ben Christophers on Marxophone in a laser field on UK’s E4. Here’s what it looked and sounded like.
