SERPENTINA’ marks BANKS’ first release as an independent artist, seeing herenter previously uncharted territory in every sense—from sound to lyrics to visuals, and everything in-between. “In the past I’ve been really tight and controlled, and I don’t feel like that right now,” says BANKS. “I just feel more wild and free.”

Last, month, BANKS performed her single ‘Holding Back’; live on ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel Live! Watch HERE. She also released her latest single and music video ‘I Still Love You.’ Written by and co-produced by BANKS alongside Orlando Higginbottom and Shlohmo, BANKS co-directed and edited the intimate music video with James Mountford (WATCH). Speaking about the new song, BANKS reveals, “I’ve held this song tight for over six years. It felt like a secret I wanted to keep just for myself. But I finally feel not only ready but so excited to share this with the world,” she explains. “It’s about loving someone you don’t talk to anymore. Missing the little things about them. Even the things you thought you hate. I hope you feel like you are sitting next to me when you listen. And I hope it’s as special to those who hear it as it is to me.” 

‘SERPENTINA’  is available everywhere today.

About BANKS

BANKS is an American singer, songwriter, producer, poet, and director. Since her spellbinding debut in 2014, BANKS has garnered more than 1.4 billion combined streams and headlined sold out shows and festivals all over the world. Her debut album Goddess received critical acclaim and commercial success (the record charted in the top 20 in seven countries including North America), and firmly established her sonic signatures: alternative pop inflected with touches of the off-kilter R&B she grew up with. BANKS returned in 2016 with The Altar, a darker and more intense refraction of the themes she explored on Goddess, also released to widespread praise and multiple top 20 placings in both the U.S. and abroad.Then, for her third album in 2019, she unveiled the exhilarating, synth-heavy lead single “Gimme,” produced by Hudson Mohawke, as the lead single for the aptly titled III, marking yet another step in her progression as an artist with its more experimental production flourishes and more mature lyrical themes. Following the success of III, she embarked on her biggest tour yet in support of the record, spanning 33 sold-out dates in nine countries. A muse for fashion houses such as Chanel and Dior, she has graced front-row seats at fashion shows and the covers of multiple high-end publications around the world. She has performed at many of the world’s biggest festivals (Coachella, Lollapalooza), at the prestigious Guggenheim in NYC, as well as on multiple late night television shows over the years (Colbert, Kimmel, Meyers).
