Bat For Lashes Gets Naked for The Haunted Man; Top Five Nude Album Covers (NSFW)

Natasha Khan, better known by her stage moniker Bat For Lashes, recently revealed a whole lot more than her new single "Laura." Bat those lashes, cause the UK singer and songwriter bared it all on the cover of her upcoming album, The Haunted Man. Well. Sporting a new short bob cut, Khan is pictured wearing only an equally nude male over her shoulders like a stole, his buttocks dangerously close to her ear. All this flesh led us to ask: Is he this Haunted Man she sings of? What does it all mean?

While we ponder these mysteries, and play "Laura" on constant repeat, how about taking a gander at our list of the top five album covers that feature folks in the flesh. Remember, it's NSFW, so you might want to peruse this post on your lunch break.

5. Roxy Music - Country Life (1974)
Shot by Eric Boman, this scandalous cover featured two nearly nude models. Rumor has it Bryan Ferry met the females in Portugal, convinced them to do the shoot, as well as enlisted them to assist with the lyrics to "Bitter-Sweet." The cover was censored in the United States, the Netherlands, and Spain, eventually leading to a LP release with an alternate cover sans the scantily-clad lasses. In today's Terry Richardson world, this album cover seems like a boring American Apparel ad.

4. The Jimi Hendrix Experience - Electric Ladyland (1968)
Man, were the '60s and '70s a great time for tits on record covers or what? For the cover art on the Jimi Hendrix Experience's third and final album featuring new material, Electric Lady Land, a group of 19 women posed nude. However, this wasn't what Hendrix envisioned originally -- he wanted a group of ladies posing with the Alice in Wonderland sculpture in Central Park. Despite his original plans, the bigwigs upstairs went ahead with the nudies. Since, Hendrix family honors his original wishes and has done away with this boob baring cover. We have to ask one thing: Did all boobs look like that in the seventies?

3. Sugar Ray - Lemonade and Brownies (1995)
Apparently Sugar Ray released its debut album with actress Nicole Eggert -- of Charles in Charge and Baywatch "fame" -- on the cover. Who knew something came before "Fly?" But, despite her hot, naked body, this album didn't attract any attention. No surprise there. Sorry, Mark McGrath, not even your fleeting good looks paired with a busty nude model could save you from your bad music.

2. Roger Waters - The Pros and Cons of Hitch Hiking (1984)
Why not go for a naked ass on your first album cover as a solo artist? Roger Waters thought it was a grand idea, and we happen to agree. The woman shown on the cover was certainly no stranger to taking her clothes off in front of the lens. It's softcore porn "actress" Linzi Drew. And let's be honest, who wouldn't pick up this woman, wearing only a pair red high heels and looking for a ride?

1. John Lennon & Yoko Ono - Unfinished Music No. 1: Two Virgins (1968)
John and Yoko, what a magical pair. And how they loved taking off those clothes! Damned hippies! However, being naked on the cover of this album represents a whole lot more than just going against "the man." In fact, the debut album was a result of an all night musical experiment that ended in the couple consummating their relationship. Talk about a happy ending.
