On the record, the unlikely duo team up with Florence Welch and Banks talked about how that appearance happened. Interpol was on tour last year and our final show was in Ireland," he said. "And as I got off stage, she approached me… and she was super-sweet and friendly. So we talked and exchanged information, and then I kind of circled back to her." He added that working with her for Banks & Steelz "went smoothly" and she "fucking killed it" on the track she appears on.
