Banks’ highly anticipated new album, III, is just days away from release, but the songstress gave her fans a final taste of the record before the big reveal.
On Wednesday (July 10), she unveiled “Contaminated,” a heavy synth-based melody juxtaposed by the songstress’ signature airy vocals to detail the draining and heartbreaking process of being with someone not healthy for you.
“‘Contaminated’ is about being addicted to a toxic relationship. The more you give, the less of yourself you become,” Banks said of the track in a press statement.
Tomorrow night, ahead of the July 12 III release, the singer will preview material from the album during her sold-out show at House of Vans Chicago, as part of the Vans House Parties series. She’ll then head out on her fall tour in support of the record, which is officially slated to kick off on Sept. 3 at REBEL in Toronto.
