Bat for Lashes Shares New Song Snippet During Virtual Hangman Game

What could "_EX _ITC_" stand for?

Bat for Lashes’ last album, The Haunted Man, came out in 2012, but Natasha Khan is mysteriously teasing something new on social media. Over the past couple days she’s been posting what appears to be a game of hangman to Twitter, with a new letter every day, and Wednesday’s update includes a snippet of a new song. It’s a buoyant, bongo-banging jam that bodes well for the upcoming album, assuming that’s what this is.

Three letters are still missing. Hex Witch, Sex Witch, or Sex Bitch, perhaps? At this rate we’ll know for sure by the end of the week.
