The follow-up to that album is The Haunted Man, released on 11th October 2012. The album tells us about a relationship in its maturity – and asks questions that I am sure we all have at times. "[I] Never whisper you a great love story, only scream and cry and moan/But you're a good man/I just keep telling myself to just let go."
The album artwork is stunning and potentially iconic. Kahn wanted to abandon the headdresses and face-painted imagery of previous covers. The end result, produced by Ryan McGinley, is simple and strong; a nod to the likes of Patti Smith and PJ Harvey. The girl has been hunting and is wide eyed, caught in the act of carrying her catch across her back.
