Banks & Steelz Premiere “Sword in the Stone” Featuring Kool Keith
Banks & Steelz, also known as RZA and Interpol's Paul Banks, are preparing their respective fanbases for something they've never heard before. With the help of some bars provided by Kool Keith, the duo drop their latest single "Sword in the Stone" today (July 28) off their upcoming collaborative debut Anything But Words. The track premiered today on Zane Lowe's Beats Radio 1.
RZA and Banks' partnership dates back three years and its taken some time to put the passion project together.
“When I met Paul, I recognized the New York energy he has as a music artist,” said the Wu-Tang beat smith in Rolling Stone back in 2013. “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.”
Check out "Sword in the Stone" above and the tracklist from the album below. Expect more rap rock infusions from these two as Anything But Words drops Aug. 26.
