In 2013 in an interview with Rolling Stone, Wu-Tang Clan's unofficial pack leader RZA announced that he was making music with Paul Banks of Interpol under the moniker Banks and Steelz. In the interview, RZA opened up about how he ended up teaming with Banks.
I love Paul. We're been working on it for six months now. He just left my house. He came and spent two weeks at my house – I have a guesthouse in my studio. Warner Bros, they gave us a deal.
Tomorrow, Zane Lowe will share the first new music from the collaboration on his Beats 1 Radio show. There is also an accompanying art installation in L.A.
