Banks

BANKS has officially announced today, details of her forthcoming fourth studio album SERPENTINA. Set for global release on April 8 via AWAL, the 13-track full-length was written and co-produced by BANKS, features previously released-fan favorites such as ‘Skinnydipped’ and ‘The Devil,’ as well as her latest single — released today — the rousing, anthemic ‘Holding Back,’

That sense of playfulness and reinvention is encapsulated in the album’s title. “Serpentine” was a word BANKS remembers doodling in her school journals, while the “a” at the end represents a feminization of that idea—an embodiment of a kind of snake queen, as BANKS describes it. “Snakes represent rebirth and the shedding of one’s skin,” she says. “They just move on, and I think that’s what life is about. Changing and transforming, with a little bit of danger, but also smooth and silky. It just felt like the perfect representation. This album feels regal to me, but also my most human ever. So I think it kind of touches both ends of the spectrum.”
