The tempo's been turned up, the torment toned down, and the chorus sounds a bit like Black Coffee-era All Saints. In other words, this wouldn't sound out of place on daytime Radio One.
Having said that, the lyrics might be a touch too gothic for the mums and dads: "You got me beggin for thread / To sew this hole up that you ripped in my head," the R&B star intones, to chilling effect.
The song is called Beggin' For Thread and you can buy it now if you live anywhere except the UK.
Update: Now available on UK iTunes.
Fittingly, Beggin' For Thread is the big promotional push for Banks's 14-track debut album, Goddess, which is out on 8 September.
If you haven't been paying attention, her previous singles (all available on iTunes) are well worth checking out. Here's my three favourites so far:
Banks - Warm Water
Banks - Before I Ever Met You
