North American Tour Includes Two Canadian Dates 

16 NOVEMBER 2017 (TORONTO, ON) – Following the kick-off of his headlining North American tour, Jacob Banks has released a stripped-down live performance of his new single “Unknown (To You)”. Backed by only a piano, the video heightens Jacob’s already commanding vocals, amplifying the raw, emotional experience of the song. Watch the intimate performance of “Unknown (To You)” HERE.

The North American leg of Jacob’s Into The Wild Tour began earlier this month at the iconic Roxy Theatre in Los Angeles, with Billboard exclaiming “Banks’ vocal ability is nothing short of stunning. He’s a powerhouse soloist whose agile pen only adds an intuitive layer of emotiveness to everything he touches.” The tour will make two stops in Canada including a show in Toronto next week. These dates follow a series of performances at this summer’s biggest festivals and Jacob’s completely sold-out headlining European tour. While in Europe, Jacob made his television debut with performances of “Unknown (To You)” on France’s C à Vous and Album de la Semaine on Canal+ and Denmark’s Go’ morgen Danmark.

“Unknown (To You)” is the first single from Jacob’s debut album The Village which will be released on Interscope Records/Universal Music Canada, the country’s leading music company. The New York Times recognized the track as one of the best new releases, proclaiming "Jacob Banks makes a grandly abject apology in "Unknown (to You)," a gospelly dirge with tolling piano chords and swelling strings behind his ever more desperate baritone growl.” Jacob’s powerful vocals have earned him critical acclaim, with NYLON pronouncing “you can feel it in your bones when he sings,” and PAPER proclaiming “each track is an utterly spiritual experience." This live, stripped down version of the track comes soon after the Timbaland remix of the song. The remixed track received high praise, with Billboard raving “Jacob Banks is the kind of artist you fall in love with. His voice is deep, strong, and deliciously emotive. His music is thoughtful and overwhelming. You’d imagine the producers are lining up to work with him, and Timbaland, for one, got in the door on a remix of his single ‘Unknown (To You).’” Listen to the remix HERE.
