20 October 2017 (Toronto, ON) – Singer/songwriter Jacob Banks has teamed up with legendary producer Timbaland to release “Unknown (To You) Timbaland Remix” via Interscope Records/Universal Music Canada, the country’s leading music company. The remix picks up the tempo with Timbaland’s unmistakable, futuristic beats, enhancing the track’s powerful emotion and Jacob’s commanding vocals. i-D premiered the remix, dubbing it “the track you need to hear today” and declaring “rebooted with seriously dramatic strings and a walloping great choir, Tim adds to the gorgeous track in the way only Tim can.” Listen to “Unknown (To You) Timbaland Remix” here.

Timbaland reveals, “I’m passionate about working with up and coming artists, the voices of our next generation, and Jacob is one of those voices for sure. He’s an incredible talent, and I knew I had to work with him when I heard ‘Unknown (To You).’” Jacob adds, “Timbaland has been behind some of the greatest hits of my generation and has had a huge influence on where music is today. ‘Unknown (To You)’ is such a meaningful track to me and getting the chance to collaborate with Timbaland on this song was an absolute honor.”

"Unknown (To You)" was recently released to critical acclaim, with Essence announcing Jacob one of “7 new R&B crooners you need to check out” and PAPER declaring when “Jacob Banks sings, you listen.” The track’s video, which boldly examines how difficult it can be for men to express emotion, was praised by Pigeons & Planes for its “stunning, cinematic visuals” with NYLON proclaiming “powerful doesn’t even begin to cover it.”  “Unknown (To You)” is the first single from Jacob's forthcoming album The Village (Interscope Records).
