California-based singer BANKS has released a statement regarding UK pop group Neon Jungle covering 'Waiting Game' for their debut album Welcome To The Jungle. BANKS expressed her surprise, especially since the track is set to appear on her debut album GODDESS (out this September), saying she was "never asked":

"I was as shocked as you to see this song made up of my own heartbeats on their album," she says in a statement to fans. "How strange it is to see it used on someone else’s album before it even comes out on mine. It makes me feel very uncomfortable. Like my own thoughts were stolen from me and sold as someone elses. I am a new artist and new to this business and I am told it is legal. But it feels really icky."

A Facebook commenter has pointed out that the Neon Jungle album also features a cover of Hozier's 'Take Me To Church' that is credited as such, but BANKS' song isn't.
