6. Bat For Lashes, The Haunted Man
Art Director: Ryan McGinley
The intimacy of the cover for Bat for Lashes' The Haunted Man foreshadows an entire album of hauntingly beautiful melodies and a glimpse into the mind of Natasha Khan. It's raw and honest, and Khan has said its her and her "haunted man."
Yet, the cover photo is so stripped down—Khan is wearing no clothes or makeup—that it superbly symbolizes the emotional lyrics flowing through her third album.
