III is expected sometime this year and follows 2016’s The Altar. Speaking to TIDAL, Banks said the new LP is about growth. “[It’s] about going from being a romantic who’s a bit naive and hopeful to being a wise woman,” she said. “But in between you go through pain and you learn people can lie and you learn those hard lessons that are quite painful.”
