Azealia Banks has revealed that her debut album will be titled 'Broke With Expensive Taste' and that it will be released in September.

The rapper, who wrapped up her stint as the opening act on the NME Awards Tour alongside Two Door Cinema Club, Metronomy and Tribes on Saturday (February 25), told Nylon Magazine that the album's lyrical theme would be "a young girl trying to find it".

Asked about her album, the rapper replied: "It's called 'Broke With Expensive Taste' and it's coming out in September. The theme is a young girl trying to find it."

Then asked what she meant by ''find it'', Banks said: "Success! Herself! Her path! The young girl trying to make it! That girl who's at the end of her childhood trying to get a job and make some money, you know? She needs to get what she can get! She needs to go out there and show people she knows how to work for it."

The rapper will play a sold out show at London's Heaven venue tonight (February 27) and will release her debut EP, '212', on March 25. The EP will feature the track '212', as well as 'Liquorice' and a number of new remixes.

Azealia Banks is set to tour the UK in support of 'Broke With Expensive Taste' in September. She will play 11 shows on the run, which begin at Manchester's Club Academy on September and continue until October 12 when she headlines London's O2 Shepherds Bush Empire.
