Banks 'What You Need' (The Weeknd cover live at Maida Vale)
Banks's fall trip with fellow noir & B player the Weeknd has apparently left a lasting influence on her, as she's recorded a slinky cover of her tourmate's early single "What You Need" for BBC DJ Zane Lowe.

Captured at BBC's famed Maida Vale studios, the remake wraps subversively twinkly, nocturnal guitar strums and downtempo drum pad clicks around Banks's series of earthy vocal runs and reinterpreted lines about stealing that friction off someone's lips.

This is what you need, and you can let the low-key live performance knock your boots off by giving the video a play down below.
