BANKS has just released her first new material since last year's highly acclaimed album, The Altar.

Although her Altar tour is currently underway (she's kicking off the US leg next week after a couple of Austin dates in March), she has taken the time to unveil 'Crowded Places' - a brand new track that signals a new LP could be heading our way sooner than we think. More intimate than we're used to, 'Crowded Places' finds BANKS exploring quieter corners and triumphing in the process. You can stream the new song below.
