Banks has announced the follow up album to her 2014 debut Goddess will arrive September 30.
New single F… With Myself gets straight to the point: “So I f… with myself more than anybody else”, she sings in that voice that’s been alternately compared to Aaliyah, Fiona Apple, Kate Bush, Erykah Badu and Lauryn Hill.
“This song is about being your own best friend, your own mother, and your own lover,” says Banks.
She has also premiered a chilling and distressing music video of her gyrating alone in a room flanked by contorted dancers, and literally beating herself up.
Banks landed on year-end best albums lists from Rolling Stone among others. Time says Banks makes yearning seem like a worthwhile pastime when she sings about it in her seductive voice while Interview declared her sound hits hard like hip-hop but consistently flirts with elements of R&B and electronic; and her sullen, sexy aesthetics are strong and assured.
