One week ago, just after sharing the music video for her new single “Gimme,” BANKS revealed that her upcoming album will simply be titled III, with a release due this July. Today, BANKS unveiled the album cover art for III, featuring a brand new logo and a new stylistic direction.
Check out the III album cover art below:
In describing III to Billboard last week, BANKS stated that, “I was going through a major growth spurt when I made this album,” in which she transformed from a “naive girl” into a “wise woman.” Indeed, the new songs on III show the confident side of her, previously heard on songs like “Underdog” and “F–k With Myself.”
BANKS considered naming her album Eros, which would have fit in with her first two album titles: Goddess and The Altar. Instead, she opted for III. (In our opinion, Eros would have made an excellent title; oh well.)
Although she hasn’t yet revealed any new song titles, we do know how the album ends. The closing track features her 4-year-old niece, Georgia, saying “I love you.” What a sweet way to close the album!

We can’t wait to hear III this July! For now, enjoy her new single “Gimme” and its just-released music video. Stay tuned for more details about the forthcoming album, including its tracklist and specific release date. Now that we have the album cover art, it shouldn’t be long before we learn more.
