Having won the Best Contemporary Song award at this year’s Ivor Novellos (for ‘Daniel’), Bat For Lashes – aka Natasha Khan – has posted a thank you not that mentions – albeit briefly – how she’s currently working on a new album and a short film, and how we should strive to save 6 Music.

The singer said…

“Hello everyone… Wow!!! I am so thrilled and happy to have won an Ivor Novello award! The whole ceremony was really overwhelming with tons of great musicians, songwriters and composers gathered under one roof. I was soooo nervous, but managed not to cry until after I accepted my award.

I think this one means such a lot to me, because its about the craft of songwriting, which at times can be a maddening and terrifying thing to do, but equally joyous and liberating when you think you’ve cracked it. I couldn’t have believed after writing Daniel in my bedroom, dreaming about lost teenage love, that this would happen!

I just want to thank everyone who has supported me to get to this point… I am writing the new album right now and so excited to be creating a whole new world!! Cups of tea, piles of books and musical instruments abound. I am also making some short films which i hope to share with you at some point.

Stay happy and well, and please, if you can, make your vote online to save BBC 6Music. The deadline is approaching, we music lovers can’t afford to lose this radio station!

Love natasha”
