I think it's pretty safe to say by now that one of this year's most anticipated debut record comes in the form of Banks' Goddess. We heard the title track a few weeks back, and now she's premiered 'Drowning' from the record with Zane Lowe on Radio 1, who's crowned it his Hottest Record. It's got dark, seductive production and the gorgeous and warm vocals we've come to know and love from her. She told Zane that the track is about "creating the idea of a relationship where you're unheard, you're trapped in this box - it's not a healthy situation", and you can listen to it below.

Goddess drops on 8 September through Harvest Records. She's got a run of sold out US tour dates coming up as well with Jerome LOL, and those are all listed below.
