Tank and The Bangas release ‘No ID’

Tank and The Bangas is premiering their new single “No ID” alongside an accompanying video.

Best New Artist Grammy nominee and critically acclaimed band Tank and The Bangas return with their third studio album, Red Balloon, set for release on Friday 13th May via Verve Forecast. Available to pre-order HERE. 

Red Balloon was born out of a pandemic-ordered break from the band’s rigorous touring schedule. The hiatus gave the band space to breathe and double down on who they are as artists, allowing them to reunite as a more unified group. The new work has evolved and pushes the band to a new level, shedding light on their unique observations and songwriting reflecting on the ills of America while also celebrating the beauty of Black life. 

“This has been one of the best attempts thus far at capturing what happens when we’re all playing at the same time,” notes the band. “Red Balloon is coming straight for your heart and your neck. It’s going to make you bop and think and love, hopefully, and even love people that look different.” 

Predominantly produced by Tank and the Bangas, the 16-track album was recorded at Bangaville Studios in New Orleans and Revival Studios in Los Angeles. Red Balloon also includes contributions from Jacob Collier, Trombone Shorty, The Hamiltones, Alex Isley, Masego, Questlove, Lalah Hathaway, Big Freedia, and Wayne Brady.

In conjunction, the group is premiering their new single “No ID” alongside an accompanying video. “No ID” is about not letting just anybody into your life; the song concludes with frontwoman and lead vocalist Tarriona “Tank” Ball singing, “If we gon’ go deeper, Ima need to see what’s beneath the surface of your smile and if you’re worth staying a while.” Listen to the single HERE.
