Banks has been teasing her new music recently in a hashtag that really took off with fans on Twitter. After taking inspiration from the pic/ cover above, fans started posting on the #TitsOutForBanks hashtag with pics of their own in order to do something body positive and for the fan community. It was among the most tweeted tags of the past week.
It was all in anticipation for the first single from a forthcoming third album, Banks’ first since 2016’s The Altar.
‘Gimme’ debuted earlier today as Zane Lowe’s Beats 1 show and features a co-production from Hudson Mohawke and BJ Burton (Bon Iver, Francis and the Lights) so it’s keeping in line with Banks dark pop aesthetic with interesting sounds and twisted vocal pops. It is a co-write with Frank Ocean’s keyboardist and player Buddy Ross (Frank Ocean, Vampire Weekend, Wet).
It’s a song about being upfront about what you want with Banks singing “At the rock bottom baby crawl, crawl / I let you lick it from the ground, ground,I been dripping for your love, love / You can call me that bitch.”
“It’s about knowing what you deserve, saying it out loud, and demanding it with no apologies,” says BANKS. “I’m ready to release this into the world and begin a new chapter.”
The song has been added to our New Music Spotify playlist.
