Interpol’s Paul Banks and RZA share new collaborative song “Who Needs the World” — listen

Banks & Steelz return with the follow-up to last year's Anything But Words

Last summer, Interpol frontman Paul Banks and Wu-Tang Clan rapper RZA let loose their debut album as Banks & Steelz. Now, the unlikely bedfellows have reconvened to share a new collaborative song called “Who Needs The World”.

As its title hints, the track is a lamenting of the planet’s slow demise. Banks and RZA take turns mourning the melting ice caps and society’s obsession with materialism and greed. “It’s just a bunch of tomfoolery!” they sing, as sharp electric guitars and melancholy strings slice and zigzag throughout.
