Back To The Studio
On January 5, 2016, Natasha was back in the studio again. This time she was working with her original team of writers.
In studio again ! So happy . Writing with my original team who I wrote some of my best songs with . #thesewords #single #wildhorses #ibruiseeasily #trickyangel #frogsandprinces #piratebones
Surprise Project: "Unicorn"
On January 12th, Natasha revealed on Instagram that she’d filmed a video for a “surprise project.” Very exciting! What’s more, she included the hashtag #unicorn. Does that little clue mean a new song? Back in October 2013, a new song title appeared on ASCAP called “Unicorn” – Natasha had written it with Toby Gad and Jef Martens. Could the song “Unicorn” be part of this special project?
Did a special video shoot today for a surprise project. So excited! #unicorn #? ?@xoxohadas
It was later confirmed that the song is a collaboration with the musician Basto (part of Lazy Jay) - aka the co-writer, Jef Martens. "Unicorn" is his newest single and it features Natasha.

Unicorns are real! ✨?@bastomusic #unicorn
On January 21st, Basto shared a preview of "Unicorn" on his SoundCloud:
"Unicorn" is Released Along With a Music Video
On February 22nd, Natasha and Basto's song "Unicorn" was finally released in full along with a music video. The song combines Basto’s electro house sound with Natasha’s uplifting lyrics. Her voice is light and free, and if not for the different musical direction, it’s a song that would have fit right in on her previous albums. The music video focuses on Natasha – looking magical thanks to lots of glitter, metallic clothes, and a sparkling cape – as she dances in an open field. She’s eventually joined by three other girls before the music video’s end. Listen to “Unicorn” in the music video below:
You can pre-order “Unicorn” on iTunes now, ahead of a March 4th release. With any luck, this may signal the start of Natasha's new album era. Will "Unicorn" appear on the album? When will the record be released? Hopefully we'll get some concrete information in the next few months.
Studio Updates: February - May 2016
