  17. Ibought his first album “skyscraper”… I had rather, with a special gift from England … Julian Plenti lives .. album two songs at the end of this album a few more years yet to wait for the effect … I can not explain how the song feels like summertime song is coming …. I came to a distance of 700 km for June 2011 concert in Istanbul. period, and coincided with the final concert and stayed at the university classroom

    i love your voices… i wanna meet again in istanbul

    Well I really hope you come back to ARGENTINA in the BanksPaulBanks tour! Pretty pleaseee!and I’m excited to get ‘Banks’ Album :D Thank you for everything!

    Love from Argentina!♥

  21. Congratulations for the new album, songs like “The Base” and “Summertime is comming” are just awesome!

    Your songs transmit so much feelings, they always transport me in an other universe, I can’t describe it.

    bonne continuation

    Greetings from France.

    — Guillaume · 12 August 2012 · #

  22. I love all the songs you sing I feel like it all comes from your heart the ups the downs all of it. I love your new song I just love all your songs.

    — Chastity · 15 August 2012 · #

  23. i love it the base, wonderfull song

    — Julian · 16 August 2012 · #

  24. rich layers, such anticipation for Oct 22 release

    — Chava · 16 August 2012 · #

  25. Wow, what an incredible song! Interpol is my favorite band but their songs tend to take a while to grow on me; they never flat out impress me upon first listen. However, this song dragged me in immediately and then continued impressing me the whole way through. Pre-ordered it before the song even finished, great work that I look forward to spending more time with.

    — Brian Chase · 16 August 2012 · #

  26. All that I can say is Thank you Mr. Banks

  30. Lovely tune. I’m still waiting for the day I can finally see Interpol (or Julian Plenti (you’ll forever be Julian for me!)) live. I don’t know where I’ll have to travel in order to achieve it, but I will.

    Cheers from Peru.

    — Ernesto Varela · 17 August 2012 · #

  34. I’m blushing with how good this is, and how much you’ve evolved since I first heard you on a strange, late night video clip show, here in Australia, so many years ago.
    Amazing work, Paul.

    — Geofa · 17 August 2012 · #

  35. Nice sounds, I can’t wait to hear the rest of it in October.
    Even more so, hoping that you tour sometime soon as well.

  38. Whether as yourself or Julian Plenti, your music is beautiful. Don’t let anyone tell you otherwise and keep doing what you are doing.

    Miriam G. · 17 August 2012 · #

  39. I will never be able to put into words the ways in which your music has touched me and impacted my life. You are a beautiful soul, Paul Banks, a profoundly talented and magnificent man, and you deserve all the success and happiness in the world. We love you, and we are always behind you. God Bless.

    — Mia Z. · 17 August 2012 · #

  40. I would very much like to hear you live in Finland soon. Try to make your tour to last this far and give us a chance to FEEL your music.

    — Masu · 17 August 2012 · #

  41. Can’t wait, can’t wait, can’t wait!! ❤❤❤

    — France · 17 August 2012 · #

  42. You are completing your shift from your alter-ego to a real personality — which some might say that you are accepting your other-reality as your real-reality —. It has been a great voyage with you since Julian Plenti. There have been many ways to describe your musical life, my favourite of which is that Interpol is the urban, metropolitan way of music and Julian Plenti is the innermost desires, countryside, escape from the city life.

    Everything about your music feels so personal, from covers to the music itself. I hope that you will provide for us the musical material to keep us fed for a long time.

    Leif LaCroix · 18 August 2012 · #

  43. I love “the base” such an amazing, beautiful song, as always of course. Paul you are the artist I will like to become one day, you have done so much for me, thank you.

    — Kira Soryu · 18 August 2012 · #

  44. Ya espero el nuevo disco!!! Canciones que seguramente formarán parte del soundtrack de mi vida. Me ha gustado “the base” pero me has enganchado con “summertime is coming”.

    — Maya · 20 August 2012 · #

  45. I loved the song as soon as I heard it, but there just one thing, I cannot download it, its there any other way to get it??? When do you come to Mexico??
    Lovely Regards.

  51. love the base…and i thought summertime is coming was already pretty good!

    please consider coming to singapore or malaysia as it would be an honour to see you perform ‘live’.

    i’ve been a fan since turn on the bright lights, way before they started selling interpol CDs at HMV here (i had to buy them in the states; too bad your solo CDs haven’t made it here yet)!

    — justjessica · 28 August 2012 · #

  52. Paul, I love your voice !
    Great song !
    Hope to see you again in Italy

    — Rossella · 6 September 2012 · #

  53. The EP and the base are absolutely phenomenal! These songs are head and shoulders above anything from your previous album (which is a masterpiece itself).

    Can’t wait!

    — Olly · 7 September 2012 · #

  54. I’ve had this on REPEAT for weeks!!! Love your work Paul…. flying from Brisbane (Oz) to NY to hear your latest stuff live… your music is totally worth it!!!

    Gökhan Yaman · 26 October 2012 · #

  67. Young Again is so beautiful it makes me feel euphoric nausea! The last time I felt this wave of blackout nausea was when I heard NYC for the first time in San Fran. I was clutching my gut. It was a rampage of beauty, a decision, a turning point, an instant healing, a rush of pent up emotion, an answer to my cry for help. Every 10 years one of your songs has saved my life! Can’t wait to see u in Denver on tour! A black tie will be thrown on stage. :)

    — Mindreda (Min) · 26 October 2012 · #

  68. Great, great, amazing album!! I’ve had it on repeat for the past week and I’m still discovering all the subtleties!! Thank you!

  73. This is one hell of a masterpiece, Mr Banks! I can’t wait to see you on Thursday. You might not remember me at all but we met in Glasgow when you were touring with Interpol. It was so generous of you to invite my friend and me to the gig. It was a really great night and I’d like to say thank you so let’s go and get a drink together. What do you think?

    — Julia · 21 January 2013 · #

  74. I am amazed, happy, and grateful about this record PAul.
    We met few years back in NYC, I play in Dead Sexy. I also take pictures of things that moves and things that don’t.
    I’m leaving Berlin when you get in.
    That’s a pitty.
    Please keep on spreding the love and the grace.
    Give a good day.

  77. BANKS! You came to Chile D: and I did not know.

    You could at least say that you didn’t accept my invitation, you know?, It doesn’t hurt to be polite at all.

    ¬_¬ I so wanted to talk to you about the things you write.

    U.U Still, I can’t be mad at you >_> You’re still gonna be my favourite singer ¬_¬ but, when my books get published there’s no way I’m letting you get my autograph or something.
