Azealia Banks has shared her fiery new house track, “Anna Wintour.” Making its world debut on Ebro’s Beats 1 radio show, the new single is the first formal offering from her long-awaited album, Fanatsea II.
The catchy melody features Banks effortlessly switching between vocal and rapping skills over a drum-heavy beat. Like most of Banks’ song repertoire to date, the song references the glitz and glamor of fame while also paying homage to the Vogue editor-in-chief herself.

In a statement on Instagram, Banks noted, “I wrote this song about finding myself and finding God.” She continued, “This song was written to embody the feeling felt when you connect with the universe.” Read the statement in full below.
In discussion with Ebro, Banks revealed that her upcoming record will follow up her 2012 Fantasea mixtape and is likely to drop “by July at the latest.” The album, which will be released via Entertainment One, is also slated to feature rapper Busta Rhymes.
