Melbourne singer/producer Chet Faker and L.A. singer BANKS have a lot in common. They’re practically neighbors at the same intersection of woozy electronic music and atmospheric R&B, and both released a debut album last year. Now they’ve teamed up on a new version of “1998,” the warm, pulsating standout off of Faker’s Built On Glass LP. Just premiered on Zane Lowe’s Beats 1 radio show, the new “1998” is a lot like the old “1998,” but the presence of BANKS’ silken voice infuses the second half of the track with an added sense of sensuality and drama. Listen.
“1998” (Feat. BANKS) is out now on iTunes.
