And ooh wee, have I been waiting for Banks to release something this good to spark some sort of creative inspiration.

SPEAK has finally released a second track off of their forthcoming album, and it’s a song that’s actually been 2 years in the making. We can say with confidence that it’s been well worth the wait. As per usual, The National will get you on your knees bawling in the best way possible with their new cover of Perfume Genius’ ‘Learning’.
