Following much speculation and a sample which surfaced yesterday, Azaelia Bank’s EP 1991 has finally leaked online in full, just hours ahead of an expected release internationally.
The EP follows the release a fortnight ago of new track, ‘Jumanji’, the first taste of a forthcoming mixtape dubbed Fantastic, which isn’t due until late winter, before the pint-sized rapper unleashes her debut, Broke With Expensive Taste, in September.
Banks, who is confirmed to appear in Australia for the first time at this year’s Splendour In The Grass, is already one of this year’s most hotly-tipped acts after only a handful of singles set the blogosphere alight. Namely, the minute-and-a-half long L8R and her potty-mouthed breakout single, 212.
The EP includes 212, but exposes fans of Bank’s trademark rap and house beats to three new tracks, including the catchy title track ‘1991’. Have a listen to the full stream below.
