On Tuesday night, genre-bending singer-songwriter Santigold debuted several songs from her forthcoming sophomore album, Master of My Make-Believe, during a gig in Brooklyn. Now, one of those tracks, the Afrobeat-inspired “Big Mouth”, has received the music video treatment. In the clip, Santigold and a group of dancers move and shake amid scenes of cartoon deserts, art museums, and what appears to be the fourth ring of Saturn. The climax, though, is when Santigold sings “Gaga-ga, all slightly off” and a blonde mermaid who bears a striking resemblance to a famous pop star gets scarfed down by a tiger. The makings of a pop beef? Decide for yourself by watching the video below. Then, head over to Santigold.com to download your own mp3 copy.
As previously reported, Master of My Make-Believe will feature contributions from Major Lazers Switch, TV on the Radios Dave Sitek, Yeah Yeah Yeahs Nick Zinner, and songwriter/producer Greg Kurstin. Stay tuned for more on the LP as it’s announced.
