Watch Banks Turn to Gold in the Video for Her New Song "Better"

Prepare to breathe heavy.

It's been a hot minute since we've heard from the goddess known as Banks. Although she’s collaborated with Chet Faker on “1998” and Tala on “Wolfpack”—this is her first solo single in 13 months. Released to celebrate her North American tour with The Weeknd, "Better" is classic Banks: a sensually understated R&B cut which you could easily slot in next to FKA twigs.

Prepare to breathe heavy because the 27-year-old’s return is accompanied by this steamy new video—her naked body covered in flaking gold gilt. Banks throwing your heart into a damn sauna once again. Tour dates listed below.
