Azealia Banks has posted a new track titled ‘Nathan’ online – scroll down to the bottom of the page and click to listen.
The song, which is a collaboration with rapper Styles-P, was published on the ‘212’ star’s Tumblr account, but it is unclear whether it will feature on her new mixtape ‘Fantasea’, released on July 11, or her forthcoming debut LP ‘Broke With Expensive Taste’, which is due out in September.
Earlier this week (June 26), Banks revealed to NME that ‘Fantasea’ would feature a cover of 90s rave icons The Prodigy and said the tape would have “a sea theme, but it’s less obviously mermaid stuff and more like witchy hip-hop and some real rave shit.” You can see the video interview by clicking at the bottom of the page.
Earlier this month, meanwhile, Banks spoke out about wanting to disassociate herself from the rap scene, stating that “from now I’m a vocalist, and will not be associating myself with the “rap game”… or whatever the fuck that means”. She also announced that she would be deleting her Twitter account @AZEALIABANKS, although swiftly returned to the social network four days later.
Azealia Banks will play Reading and Leeds festival this August, before returning to the UK for a headline tour this October.
