Banks has just released a brand new single entitled “Look What You’re Doing To Me” which features Francis And The Lights. Available for download and streaming, the single serves as the second release off BANKS’ highly anticipated third studio album III and enlists the vocal, songwriting, and production assistance of Francis and the Lights. The heartbreak ballad provides a great contrast to “Gimme” by truly letting BANKS’ iconic sultry vocals take the lead against the soft ethereal backdrop. BANKS upcoming III album is set to release this July.
Talking about the music project, she had this to say.
This album is an ode to my journey. It documents a major growth spurt. Of self-acceptance, letting go, forgiveness, and deep love. It has been painful to realize that life is not black and white. Romanticism leads to fierce reality checks, which leads to wisdom, which leads to deeper empathy which leads to greater love. This album documents the cycle. Yes, this is my third album, but that is not why I called it III. Birth-Life-Death, Beginning-Middle-End, Past-Present-Future. All III’s and all ending with a theoretical period. To me, III represents a cycle of life. It represents acceptance, the ability to let go, and the shaky first step into the unknown. I can’t wait to step into the unknown with you. – BANKS
