On Valentine’s day, Elijah Banks retells a love story captured in a rhythmic vibe that transcends current POP and R&B music. 4 AM will be available on all streaming platforms this Friday.
In an interview on The Awakened Soul Podcast Banks laughs as he explains, “I was talking to this girl one time- she was a bartender. You know, bartenders, they get off late. She kept hitting me up at 4 AM, I work a 9-5 and I’m like “Girl! You’re gonna have to call me a little bit earlier.””
The record, produced by Mantra, is powerful, soulful- a sound flash to times of slavery as Banks howls over the beat.
Elijah Banks shares, “Expect a lot of howling- I’m so serious. There’s a lot of weird sounds, but I always want to try different stuff. Just know, it’s going to sound like [times of] segregation, it’s the right month for it.”
