While it’s only been a little over a year since Banks released her debut album, Goddess, we’ve been anxiously awaiting this sultry witch queen to drop some new tracks and quench our thirst for more. This past summer, Banks began been teasing the f**k out of her new music, posting short snippets from studio sessions and letting us hear a few seconds of potential verses and hooks.
(You can’t just play us like that girl!)
Well Banks has heard our prayers from beyond and has graced us with, “Better” the first single from her upcoming new project. It’s perfect timing too as she just kicked off her tour with The Weeknd this fall. She called in to Beats 1 Radio with Zane Lowe on Wednesday morning to premiere the track and mentioned she hopes to release her next album in early 2016. This is also perfect timing as her tour gig with The Weeknd will end at the end of the year and Banks can embark on a solo tour to promote the new record. Sounds like heaven to me.
