Limited double vinyl LP pressing. 2016 release. Banks & Steelz - a musical collaboration between Wu Tang Clan's RZA and Interpol's Paul Banks. RZA and Banks first began working on music together in 2013. RZA told Rolling Stone at the time that the idea to collaborate with the Interpol frontman sparked after RZA's manager asked him who he wanted to do an album with. "When I met Paul, I recognized the New York energy he has as a music artist," RZA says. "We got to know each other playing chess and vibing out in the studio. Our talents connected in a unique way and we started writing songs. The outcome was something distinctively different from my previous work, yet with another layer of cool."
