BANKS releases Look What You’re Doing To Me (feat. Francis & The Lights)

Banks has confirmed details of much-anticipated third album III, which will be released on Virgin EMI/Harvest on July 12th. New single ‘Look What You’re Doing To Me’ (ft. Francis and The Lights) has also premiered as Annie Mac’s Hottest Record in the World on her BBC Radio 1 show, produced alongside 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).

“‘Look What You’re Doing To Me’ is a song about love. About falling in love, being in love and how you feel when you’re high on love,” says BANKS. “Vibrant, scared, on fire, excited, and all the goodness in between.

In addition to the album and new single announcement, Banks has confirmed details of The III tour, which will take in North America, the UK and Europe. Tickets will go on sale to the general public on Friday, June 14, at 10:00 AM local time at LiveNation.com.

III is BANKS’ most nuanced release yet, coming after a self-imposed period of quiet and reflection. Life has its extremes – as documented on BANKS’ Goddess and The Altar – 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, released in 2016, debuted in the Top 10 in over 30 countries on iTunes.
