Listen: Banks’ heartbreaking new song “Drowning”

on May 19, 2014, 2:44pm

On September 9th, Banks will release her debut album, GODDESS, via Harvest Records. Already we’ve heard a handful of its tracks, including the Shlohmo-produced “Brain”, “This Is What It Feels Like”, “Waiting Game”, and the empowering title track. Now, the Los Angeles songstress has shared yet another slice of shadowy R&B entitled “Drowning”.

Dubbed the “Hottest Record in the World” by BBC Radio 1’s Zane Lowe, the track finds Banks sultrily crooning about spurned love while Al Shux-produced beats throbs ominously behind her. Listen in below.
