BANKS to Release Debut Album GODDESS September 09
BANKS DEBUT ALBUM GODDESS SEPTEMBER 09
29 APRIL 2014 (Toronto, ON) – BANKS will be releasing her hotly anticipated debut album Goddess worldwide on September 09 via Harvest Records/Universal Music Canada, the country’s leading music company. The album features nine brand new tracks as well as familiar favourites Waiting Game, Brain, This Is What It Feels Like, Change and Warm Water. Album title track Goddess offers a scintillating preview from the forthcoming full length and is available to download now via iTunes with pre-orders of the album. Produced by frequent collaborator Lil Silva, Goddess is a powerful mission statement of throbbing bass, exotic hymn-like melody and the memorable refrain of "she's a goddess, you never got this". Simultaneously empowering and vulnerable, confident and yearning, visceral and keenly intelligent – Goddess embodies the beaconing allure, get-under-your-skin lyrics and innovative musical palette that have defined the singular sound of BANKS. BANKS is part of a new generation of forward-thinking artists and an emerging star in the making. From the acclaimed London EP to two consecutive sold out headline shows at London's Koko to a triumphant performance in front of a thousands-strong, packed-to-the-rafters tent at Coachella – a performance that was highlighted by everyone from Time magazine to The Guardian – it is clear that every transmission from BANKS is waited upon with bated breath.
BANKS will be touring internationally this year, including two Canadian dates: May 24 in Vancouver and June 10 in Toronto.
