BANKS’ third album, titled simply, III, will be preceded by the single “Look What You’re Doing To Me” ft. Francis And The Lights. BANKS teamed up with co-producers BJ Burton (Bon Iver) and Francis And The Lights (the musical project of Francis Farewell Starline, who is also known for his collaborations with such artists as Kanye West and Chance the Rapper), to record the song. In addition to playing piano, Francis joins BANKS on vocals.
Life has its extremes – as documented on BANKS’ Goddess (2014) and The Altar (2016) – but there’s a lot to exalt in, in between, and that’s the story III tells. “This album is an ode to my journey” says BANKS. “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”.
BANKS has amassed 1.2 billion global streams to date across all of her songs, including over 600 million cumulative streams in the U.S. alone. After the release of her breakout debut album, Goddess, she became the world’s most blogged about artist. The 2014 album included the RIAA-certified Platinum hit “Beggin For Thread” and the Gold single “Waiting Game”. The Altar, debuted in the Top 10 in over 30 countries on iTunes. BANKS has performed on such television shows as “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” “Late Night with Seth Meyers” and “Late Show with David Letterman.” Her songs have been heard in films (Divergent, The Longest Ride) and licensed by such television shows as “Grey’s Anatomy” and “Power”.
