Debut 'Broke With Expensive Taste' announced for September
AZEALIA Banks’ debut record has been announced for September.

Says Banks, who will support the album with an 11-date UK tour in the autumn:
“The [record’s] theme is a young girl trying to find it.”
Find what? “Success! Herself! Her path! The young girl trying to make it! That girl who’s at the end of her childhood trying to get a job and make some money, you know? She needs to get what she can get! She needs to go out there and show people she knows how to work for it.”
The album will be preceded by an EP, ‘212’, via Polydor on March 25.
