But as for the perfect artist to cover her tunes? "I'd quite like LCD Soundsystem to do one. I love dancing to that music," Khan tells Spinner backstage before Monday night's show in Atlanta. "And usually when [James Murphy] remixes something, it ends up quite crazy and avant-garde."
Now, Khan is giving her fans the same chance to transform her music into something new. Using the GoMix widget on Bat for Lashes' MySpace page, fans can load their best remix of Khan's latest single, 'Sleep Alone.' With its sparse guitar, slow, plodding bass line and, per usual, Khan's ethereal vocals, the tune could be reworked in almost any direction.
But, as Khan herself will pick her favorite remix -- the creator of which will win a signed copy of Bat for Lashes' 'Two Suns' -- it'd help to get some pointers from the singer herself. "I'd like to hear something wild and wonderful. Something much different from the original," Khan says. "Maybe a dubstep version, or even a dance hall remix."
Not a master of dubstep? Don't worry; you're not out of luck completely. "Just follow your own creative impulses," Khan advises. "And surprise me."
So, those of you crazy about Khan, it's time to get to work -- entries must be submitted by Sept 7.
