After returning earlier in the summer to release her brilliant comeback single 'The Devil', BANKS is back once again with another incredible effort.
The new track 'Skinnydipped' was written and co-produced by the artist herself, and is accompanied by a stunning new video co-directed by BANKS and Michael Stine, and featuring BVLGARI’S iconic Serpenti Viper and Serpenti High jewellery collections.
Speaking about the new offering, she said, “Skinnydipped is a song about finally letting go of something that you’ve gone back to many times before. It’s about knowing your worth and shedding your skin. The video is meant to portray women as divine creatures, wild in their natural habitat, untouched by society’s constructs.
“The sirens are magical, empowered, at peace and connected to one another. Celebrating sisterhood and women at all different stages. It was a really special moment for me to be able to direct this video with all of my best friends portraying the goddesses I see them to be. My friend Jaclynn, who plays one of the sirens, recently gave birth. Having her holding her beautiful daughter Benny in this video is a gift. The video Is about owning who you are, letting go of the past, and feeling proud at your purest form, naked and in nature.”
While adding about her collaboration with BVLGARI, “The Bvlgari Serpenti line is a dream collaboration for me. Being able to wear these incredibly beautiful and elaborate pieces of art representing snakes made me feel even more connected to the message of my own song. Snakes represent rebirth and shedding one’s skin which is what Skinnydipped is about and what the Serpenti collection is based upon. A woman who wears this collection feels dangerously powerful. A woman who is in tune with her natural-born divinity.”
