Buoyed by the smashing success of his recent trio of EPs – The Monologue, The Paradox and The Boy Who Cried Freedom – Nigerian-born British singer-songwriter Jacob Banks has released his eagerly awaited full album debut, Village, on Interscope. The 14-track disc is a sprawling, deeply immersive experience on which Banks’ throaty, expressive baritone weaves its way through a mesmerizing mix of musical styles and textures. The album features lead single “Be Good To Me” ft. Seinabo Sey, which was highlighted on Spotify’s New Music Friday as well as The New York Times’ “The Playlist” as one of the best new tracks upon release. Jacob’s powerful vocals and genre-bending style quickly received widespread praise everywhere from Billboard, The FADER, Complex, Interview, PAPER, NYLON, and TIME. Jacob recently made his U.S. television debut on Late Night with Seth Meyers performing critically-acclaimed single “Unknown (To You),” which has amassed over 14 million streams. Jacob’s live performances have captivated audiences around the globe, garnering rave reviews everywhere from LA Weekly to The New York Times. After playing top-notch festivals like Coachella, Lollapalooza, Austin City Limits, Life is Beautiful, and Afropunk over the last two years, Jacob will return to North American this winter for his second headlining tour. The Village tour sees Jacob stepping into the largest rooms of his career, with highlights including LA’s The Fonda and NYC’s Brooklyn Steel.
