The new single 'Prescilla' is being released on the 5th
of March as a download and on the 12th of March on enhanced CD. It comes with the b-side 'I'm On
Fire' and the enhanced CD conatins an exclusive video.
'Prescilla' has been especially re-recorded for this release. Natasha flew to Brooklyn specifically to work closely with producer Matt Boynton and a horn section to reinterpret 'Prescilla' and produce a more raw, rhythmic and full sound.
The b-side is Natasha's sensual piano ballad version of Bruce Springsteen's 'I'm On Fire'. The cover is now a highlight of the live set, and this version was recorded for Rob Da Bank's radio show and played regularly by him on Radio 1.
The video for Prescilla was directed by Andy Bruntel, who recently shot Will Oldham's video for 'Cursed Sleep'. It is a a bewitching, dark and beautifully shot video including magicians, dreamscapes and lots of flying.
