Azealia Banks has revealed her new single '#YungRapunxel', the first track to be taken from her forthcoming debut album – scroll down to listen to it.

The track will appear on the album 'Broke With Expensive Taste', which was originally planned for release in 2012. The track is released on the same day Azealia Banks has engaged in yet another Twitter argument, this time with UK pop star Rita Ora. Describing the singer as "thirsty", Banks later claimed "she's mad she's Rihanna's understudy".

Meanwhile, Banks wished death upon The Stone Roses last weekend, claiming they deliberately sabotaged her set at the Future Music Festival in Australia. Both acts were on the bill of the event and Banks claimed the Manchester band loudly soundchecked their instruments behind her stage as an act of revenge for a friend. "Big apologies on behalf of the stone roses to my fans at the festival today," she wrote. "My ex tour manager made a pact with the stone roses saying they'd sabotage my set because I fired him and they decided to check their equipment behind me during my set."

She then fired off a series of angry messages aimed at the band, which you can read below:
