As anticipation continues to mount in the run up to the release of her feverishly awaited debut album, BANKS announces new single 'Beggin For Thread', available to stream now and buy via iTunes here.
'Beggin For Thread' presents another facet of the riveting musical palette on display on BANKS debut album, a propulsive track of enticing electronic pop that is as bracingly intelligent as it is charged with visceral intent.
Having performed a triumphant set to an expectant crowd at Lovebox Festival this weekend, BANKS has announced she will be returning to the UK in November for a select number of dates, including her biggest headline show to date at Brixton O2 Academy, following selling out two consecutive KOKO dates earlier in the year.
Beforehand she will be embarking on a state-wide North American tour in September and October, as well as making her national US television debut August 7th on Jimmy Kimmel Live.
BANKS will be in the studio with Annie Mac (sitting in for Zane Lowe) this evening on BBC Radio 1 where she will be answering questions submitted by fans.
The news follows a fever pitch build that has seen BANKS emerge as a bona fide star in the making as part of a new generation of forward thinking artists. Recently wowing audiences in Roskilde and Coachella festivals as well as her own sold out-headline shows, topping the Spotify Viral Chart four times, accumulating over 20 million plays online and becoming a permanent fixture in the Hype Machine Charts, winning critical praise from all corners and plaudits running the gamut from Katy Perry to Karl Lagerfeld, it is clear that every transmission from BANKS is waited upon with bated breath.
