As you can tell from her new song’s title, Banks doesn’t hold anything back. What you see is what you get, and it couldn’t be more refreshing.
“Fuck With Myself” is honest and hauntingly sultry, and the accompanying music video is just as chilling. The smooth tone and warmth in Banks’ voice provides an interesting contrast to the mood of the song. It will give you chills, tug at your heartstrings, mesmerize you, and turn you into a hardcore Banks addict (if you weren’t already). What more could you ask for from an artist?! How about a new album?
In addition to releasing the “Fuck With Myself” video today, Banks announced that the follow-up to her acclaimed 2014 debut, Goddess, will be released on September 30 via Harvest Records. That album earned her the top spot on Billboard’s Twitter Emerging Artists Chart, the title of the #1 Most Blogged About Artist Globally (Mid Year & Year End 2014 Charts, HypeMachine), and comparisons to such vocal legends as Lauryn Hill, Erykah Badu, and Fiona Apple.
Banks chatted with Zane Lowe on Apple Music Beats 1 “World Record” the other today to promote her new single. She says the song “is about being your own best friend, your own mother, and your own lover.” If her upcoming sophomore album is anything like the preview she’s just given us, then we’re all in for a treat. Hurry up, September 30!
