Bat For Lashes musician returns with cover of classic Persian psych

Natasha Khan has confirmed a new side project with Toy and producer Dan Carey called SEXWITCH, also sharing a track, called 'Helelyos' from their debut album - you can listen to the track above.

Having debuted the project over the weekend at Green Man, Khan and co. have announced the release of an album, also entitled SEXWITCH, set for release on September 25 as well as a London headline show at XOYO on September 29.

The project arose from Khan and Carey's 2013 collaboration on a cover of the Iranian pre-revolution folk song 'The Bride'. Inspired to pursue this further, they trawled through a selection of other hidden gems and then went back into Carey's South London studio with Toy to record the six covers live, all in one session. The lyrics and music have all been adapted by Khan and produced by Carey. There are tracks on the album that originate from Iran, Morocco, the U.S. and Thailand.

The track is a cover of the Persian psych classic by Zia...
