Mysterious R&B singer Banks sticks to the shadows in the video for "Waiting Game," the current single from the Los Angeles siren's upcoming London EP. Directed by Francesco Carrozzini, the just-released clip complements the Sohn-produced track eerily well: The ashy torch song now has a snowy, black-and-white visual to go with, a three-minute short that's fluent in film noir and smoldering stares.

"Waiting Game" opens the four-track London EP, which arrives in the U.S. on September 10, the same day that fellow R&Brooder the Weeknd welcomes the world to Kiss Land. Fittingly, Banks will join Abel Tesfaye on tour this fall, opening gigs across North America throughout September and October. Watch "Waiting Game" above and scroll down for the full track list to London (featuring production work from Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs, Jamie Woon, Lil Silva, and Tim Anderson), followed by live dates.

London EP track list:

1. "Waiting Game"
