Banks & Steelz - A Venn Diagram Breakdown

Three years in the making, Interpol's Paul Banks and Wu-Tang Clan's RZA have finally announced their collaborative album, 'Anything But Words'. The record is out 26th August and we've already heard Giant and Love and War featuring Ghostface Killah below.

Alongside Banks and RZA, Florence Welch, Method Man, Masta Killa and Kool Keith are all due to appear on the record.

While it's an unlikely collaboration, Banks' love for hip-hop and RZA's flair for innovation has resulted in a perfect sonic marriage. To better understand how their worlds are colliding we've popped the pair into a venn diagram looking at what brought them together and what fired their careers separately.
