    Banks is back and turning up the heat with her new single “The Devil”.

    The R&B singer’s last album proper was 2019’s III, and she followed that in 2020 with the live EP Live and StrippedAs she confirmed in a new press release, “The Devil” is the first sinful taste of a larger project coming soon.

    Over a bass line as dark and deep as the pit, Banks whispers, “Someone write my new name down.” The song is about metamorphosis, and the lyrics find a slinky power in embracing the darkness within. She sings,”Way down I go/ Got a one-way ticket and the Devil waiting/ Call from down low/ Naive, I know.”

    In a statement, Banks said, “’The Devil’ is about being stronger than the demons that haunt you. About rebirth and transformation into the forces of nature we were born to be.”

    The song comes with a music video co-directed by Banks and Jenna Marsh. It shows fast cars, sultry red dresses, and glimpses of the supernatural that wouldn’t be out of place in a horror movie. Check out “The Devil” below.
