Just days ahead of the release of her new album, III, BANKS shared new single “Contaminated.” Zane Lowe debuted the song earlier today as a World First on Apple Music’s Beats 1. BANKS recorded “Contaminated” in Los Angeles, collaborating with producer BJ Burton (Bon Iver, Francis and the Lights).
“‘Contaminated’ is about being addicted to a toxic relationship. The more you give, the less of yourself you become,” says BANKS.
Harvest Records will release III on Friday, July 12. Tomorrow night, BANKS will preview material from the album during her sold-out show at House of Vans Chicago. The evening is the latest in the Vans House Parties series, which offers the headlining artist the opportunity to act as curator, hand-picking all supporting talent and creating a personalized visual art experience for fans.
BANKS will support III with an extensive world tour. Her two-night stand at Brooklyn Steel has already sold out and a third night (September 10) has been added. Other newly-added dates include SOMA in San Diego (October 2) and shows at House of Blues in Dallas (October 9) and Houston (October 10). The III Tour kicks off on September 3 at REBEL in Toronto and includes an October 1 show at the Hollywood Palladium in Los Angeles. See below for itinerary.
