Jacob Banks – Stranger

Jacob Banks, a Nigerian-born singer based out of the U.K., released a brand new song Wednesday titled “Stranger.”

The song comes with a new music video depicting the emotions of growing apart from a loved one and putting the pieces back together once it’s over. Banks sings, “Stranger, once upon a time we were the chorus.” You can see the video by clicking right here.

Sillkey co-produced the song with Banks, and the two use R&B and progressive electronic synths to build to an eruption of strings and keys.

Banks also directed and starred in the music video himself. He places himself and the female co-lead close enough to touch, but something non-physical continues to prevent them from reaching each other.

Banks is fresh off a feature on Grace Carter‘s “Blame.” He also recently covered the Alicia Keys hit “Like You’ll Never See Me Again.”

He has only ascended since his 2018 album “Village,” which cracked VIBE’s list of the 30 best albums of 2018. It It featured critically acclaimed songs like “Slow Up” and “Nostalgia.”

Already having performed at Coachella, SXSW and Lollapalooza, Banks will look to continue his massive success.
