London electronic music producer Jon Hopkins has been hard at work on the score for the upcoming film How I Live Now. At one point, he decided to team up with Natasha Khan, a.k.a. Bats for Lashes, for a one-off single to be featured in the movie's soundtrack. The result is a beautifully-sung ballad that manages to be lush despite of its sparse bassline foundation.
The song is accompanied by a gritty, yet fantastical music video helmed by Khan, starring Saoirse Ronan, the film's lead actress. It will also be made available for digital download on October 7 via Parlophone.
