Azealia Banks has announced her first EP for Polydor.

The Harlem rapper signed to the major mostly on the strength of ‘212’, last year’s orally fixated vocal version of Lazy Jay’s ‘Float my Boat’, and it’s ‘212’ that fronts the EP; this the track’s first official release. On the B-side, you’ll find ‘Liquorice’, Bank’s take on Nottingham producer Lone’s ‘Pineapple Crush’, and the EP will also feature some as yet unannounced remixes. Polydor will release it on March 25.
