The 14-track disc is a sprawling, deeply immersive experience on which Banks’ throaty, expressive baritone weaves its way through a mesmerizing mix of musical styles and texture, recorded alongside notable producers including Paul Epworth (Adele, James Bay, FKA twigs) and Malay (Frank Ocean, Lykke Li, Sam Smith).

Village has received rave reviews from fans and the media alike. NPR asserts, “the first thing you’ll notice about musician Jacob Banks is his voice — a mesmerizingly deep baritone with timbre so rich, you can almost feel it wrapping you up in song,” Newsweek observes, “though Village is Bank’s first release, it sounds like the collection from a seasoned musician,” and VIBE has crowned Village one of the “30 Best Albums of 2018,” declaring, “when the time comes for Banks to look back on a career well spent, Village will hold up as a shining example of a running start.” Following Village’s release, Jacob has been featured as YouTube’s “Artist on the Rise” and has released three original pieces of content since in partnership with the emerging artist program.
