Bat For Lashes - Natasha Khan Called Thom Yorke For Advice Amid Meltdown Fears

Bat For Lashes star Natasha Khan called Radiohead frontman Thom Yorke when her hectic work schedule and mounting personal problems left her on the verge of a meltdown.

The singer was seriously fatigued and suffering from writer's block when she was first attempting to record her 2012 album The Haunted Man, and she admits a personal crisis left her on the brink of quitting.

She called Yorke for help after previously growing close to the singer on a tour with Radiohead, and he told her to take a break to clear her head, according to Britain's The Times.

Khan tells the publication, "I'd been touring and living this very different lifestyle for a while. In my personal life I'd had this really... bad news... and suddenly I was on my own, thinking, 'I want to make this record, but I don't know how to do it'."

The star goes on to insist taking a break from work to indulge in "quietude and reflection" did her good.

She adds, "In my relationships with my family, with lovers, whatever, there were fewer swings and extremes."
