Azealia Banks posts new song ‘Aquababe’ online – audio

The song comes from her 'Fantasea' mixtape out July 4

Azealia Banks has posted a brand new song, called ‘Aquababe’, online.

Scroll down to listen to the track, which has been taken from her forthcoming ‘Fantasea’ mixtape, which is set for release on July 4.

Azealia Banks recently insisted that she no longer wants to be seen as a rapper. Posting on her Tumblr site, the ‘212’ star claimed that she wanted to be perceived as a “vocalist” instead – and also revealed she was deleting her Twitter account, as it made her “too accessible”. She has, however, recently reinstated her account on the social networking site.

Before ‘Aquababe’, Banks unveiled the track ‘Jumanji’, which was produced by Hudson Mohawke and Nick Hook and also taken from ‘Fantasea’. Her debut album ‘Broke With Expensive Taste’, is due this autumn.

Banks recently cancelled almost all of her summer festival appearances because of recording commitments. Banks is currently working on her debut LP and will now only play Reading and Leeds Festivals and BBC Radio 1’s Hackney Weekend. Her October UK headline tour will still go ahead as scheduled.
