The track will appear on the forthcoming album 'Broke With Expensive Taste', which was originally planned for release in 2012.

The track available to buy now.

Azealia Banks will be performing at this summer's Lovebox in London's Victoria Park. The festival will take place from July 19-21. Banks will appear on the opening day of the event, alongside Flying Lotus, Rudimental and SBTRKT.

Last month Banks wished death upon The Stone Roses, claiming they deliberately sabotaged her set at the Future Music Festival in Australia. Both acts were on the bill and Banks claimed the Manchester band loudly soundchecked 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 on Twitter. "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, including one which read: “Fuck those old saggy white niggas stone roses. I wish them nothing but excrement and death."
