Natasha Khan -- aka Bat For Lashes -- gets all epidermal on her new "Skin Song" for the forthcoming 2015 album Body Of Songs, a various artist compilation of tracks about -- wait for it -- the human body. Since deciding to bare a lot of it for the cover of her 2012 album The Haunted Man, a song about skin seems like quite the appropriate choice. Body of Songs is described as a "music and science adventure that brings together Britain's most talented musicians and medical experts to create a remarkable collection of songs, inspired by the organs of the body. Guided by medical experts including pathologists, neurologists, stem cell scientists, patients at varying stages of illness and confronting the organs themselves, the artists have begun to understand why a chosen organ works and fails. Building on this and their own emotional history and feelings, each artist has created a song." Oh boy. Can't wait for "Kidney." Watch the preview video below...

Best known for her leading musical role in the Oscar-winning film Once, Czech-born singer/songwriter Marketa Irglova will release her second solo album Muna on September 23 via ANTI-. After starring with Glen Hansard in Once and joining him in the studio and on the road as The Swell Season, Irglova encamped to her new home in Iceland to record her sophomore album's eleven songs with producer Sturla Mio Thorisson. The title of the new project is Icelandic for 'remember," a recurring theme for the album. Read more about Irglova's Muna at the DC Music News Feed and her 2011 debut album Anar at DC here...

Mutli-lingual Canadian singer and songwriter Alejandra Ribera divides her time between Montreal, Paris and Malaga, Spain nowadays but she made sure she was back north of the border this week to receive the 2014 Songwriting Prize for her song "I Want" from SOCAN, the Society of Composers, Authors and Music Publishers of Canada. Never heard of SOCAN? Neither had we -- but we're glad we found out about Ribera. "I Want" comes via Ribera's 2013 sophomore album La Boca, produced by Jean Massicotte (Patrick Watson). One of the four runners up for the prize also happened to be "Gold" by Wake Owl, a great track by an artist we featured here in a 2012 RADAR.
