RZA and Interpol’s Paul Banks To Release New Project Entitled “Banks & Steelz”


(AllHipHop News) Wu-Tang legend RZA and Interpol’s Paul Banks have decided to form a new project entitled Banks & Steelz, which has a release date yet to be determined.

This morning (May 18), the debut song “Love & War” aired on Zane Lowe’s show on Apple Music.

The unlikely duo first began working with each other in 2013. RZA  reflected  on why he sought to create with the rock star.

“When I met Paul, I recognized the New York energy he has as a music artist. We got to know each other playing chess and vibing out in the studio,” RZA said. “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.”

The track will be available for digital purchase from all retailers  tomorrow, while a video for “Love & War'” will premiere tomorrow.

RZA and the Interpol frontman also have dates set for future performance together as well.
