NME 'it' girl has ducked out of a full deal with XL Recordings to make a move to the Majors.
Banks has signed a deal with Universal Music Group with her debut set for a June/July release.
Banks has commented on the signing stating that "God had dealt her a real good hand" and that she was in the mood to celebrate. Banks reportedly turned down a deal with XL Recordings after the indie music house stopped returning her calls/text and emails.
She also has commented that she doesn't want to be the "grungy hipster brown girl" that apparently we want her to be.
