The album name was the mindchild of BANKS herself, noting in a press release that she had remembered doodling the word “Serpentine” in her notebooks.
Commenting on the meaning behind the title, BANKS explains “Snakes represent rebirth and the shedding of one’s skin,” She continues, “They just move on, and I think that’s what life is about. Changing and transforming, with a little bit of danger, but also smooth and silky. It just felt like the perfect representation. This album feels regal to me, but also my most human ever.”
