Platinum-selling artist BANKS has unveiled her electric new track, Skinnydipped. The release arrives alongside a jaw-dropping visual, co-directed by BANKS and Michael Stine, which serves as a celebration of sisterhood. Taking on the concept of sirens as divine creatures, the clip features BVLGARI’S iconic Serpenti Viper and Serpenti High jewelry collections.
“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 singer shares.
“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.”
Since her trailblazing debut album Goddess dropped in 2014, BANKS has earned more than 1.4 billion combined streams, performing globally on sold-out tours and some of the worlds largest festivals. The California-born artist, producer, songwriter and poet has broken away from major labels, embarking new and empowering era as an independent artist.
