BANKS - The Altar mp3 album
Banks’ The Altar has a lot in common with the alt-R&B singer’s breakthrough Goddess, including its fatal flaw: its attempts to position her as edgy or dangerous, despite all evidence to the contrary. Hitched to the chorus is a sprinting, stopping verse, Banks racing the beat and pausing to emote. On another album this might evoke rap, but it evokes just as much singer-songwriters like Maria Mena, or unlikely Drake collaborator Chantal Kreviazuk, or, more than anything, Fast As You Can by Fiona Apple-one of Banks' stated idols. The track’s a standout, in that it sounds like it’s off an entirely different record. If this were actually the late ’90s, with the industry trends of the time, The Altar would either be R&B via Hot AC-think Jennifer Paige-or an acoustic singer-songwriter.

Record Label: Harvest. Release Date: Sep 30, 2016. Overall, this is unmistakably a Banks album, so if you've liked anything she's done so far, this is definitely worth checking out. Despite some of the shifts described above, her darkness is still there, and it is still equal parts inviting and off-putting.
The album cover offers a glimpse of this open honesty; a grayscale image of Banks without makeup and with her curly hair in a simple updo stares directly at the camera, every freckle on her face visible. Already this was a contrast from her debut album Goddess, where she was only in profile; while Goddess, too, was intensely personal and introduced Banks onto the music scene as a reigning music indie queen, it was more introverted and downtempo.
III is the upcoming third studio album by American singer and songwriter Banks. It is set to be released on July 12, 2019 by Harvest Records. It was preceded by the singles "Gimme", and "Look What You're Doing to Me" featuring Francis and the Lights. Banks revealed the album name along with its release month in an interview with Billboard, published on May 24, 2019. The album was almost titled Eros, but Banks chose the name III to convey the "beginning, middle, and end" of a part of her life
The Altar is the second studio album by American singer and songwriter Banks, released on September 30, 2016 by Harvest Records. Producers Tim Anderson and Al Shux have worked on the album, who also contributed to Banks' debut studio album, Goddess. The lead single from the album, "Fuck with Myself", was released on July 12, 2016, and premiered on Zane Lowe's Beats 1 radio show
The Altar, Banks’ sophomore effort, is the confident realization of talents that, on the initial EPs and her debut album Goddess, were clear but occasionally muddled by middling production or more tentative vocal performances. This is her strongest effort yet. The Altar quickly introduces Banks’ push-pull emotional dynamic-the vacillation between a strong woman’s swagger and uncertainty often informed by a deep vein of sadness. Gemini Feed and Fuck With Myself, the album’s opening tracks (and first singles), take ex-lovers to task for their failures to recognize or respect her agency, the.
