Banks & Steelz – Giant (Video)

0

A little more than a month out from the release of their collaborative project Anything But WordsBanks & Steelz -a musical collaboration between Wu-Tang Clan’s RZA and Interpol’s Paul Banks – have released the second video from the album, “Giant” directed byWendy Morgan.

Produced by John Hill and Kid Harpoon (Florence + The Machine), “Giant” premiered on Zane Lowe’s Beat 1 program last month and will be used in a trailer for Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Wildlands video game.  

Anything But Words will be released on August 28thand features appearances by Florence Welch of Florence + The Machine, Kool Keith, and Wu-Tang Clan’s Ghostface KillahMethod Man, and Masta Killa.   
 
The two began working on music together in 2013. RZA told Rolling Stone at the time that the idea to collaborate with the Interpol front-man sparked after RZA’s manager asked him who he wanted to do an album with. “When I met Paul, I recognized the New York energy he has as a music artist,” RZA says. “We got to know each other playing chess and vibing out in the studio. Our talents connected in a unique way and we started writing songs. The outcome was something distinctively different from my previous work, yet with another layer of cool.” 
 
After kicking off their first show as Banks & Steelz to a sold-out crowd in Los Angeles last week, the pair will hit the road at the end of August for a series of tour and festival dates through October.
