Musicians left and right are gearing up for the 2014 World Cup.
We’ve seen both HAIM and Diplo model Team USA uniforms, heard Lily Allen bust out her “unofficial World Cup song” called “Bass Like Home”, and even watched Janelle Monáe cover David Bowie’s “Heroes” all in the name of the big sporting event. Now, Santigold, who’s remained out of the spotlight for the last six months, returns with her own show of soccer support in the form of “Kicking Down Doors”. A dancehall-tinged EDM number in the vein of Major Lazer, it was produced by Skrillex/OWSLA affiliate Yogi. Listen in over at SoundCloud.
Both “Kicking Down Doors” and Monáe’s cover of “Heroes” appear on the upcoming World Cup-inspired compilation, Pepsi Beats of The Beautiful Game, due out on June 10th.
