Since her last full-length, 2012’s Master of My Make-Believe, Santigold has ventured into the world of soundtracks and compilation albums. She’s contributed to the Hunger Games: Catching Fire film, recorded a World Cup-inspired EDM banger, and offered up a radio-ready anthem for this year’s Cara Delevingne-starring flick Paper Towns.
Now, it looks as though Santigold’s ready to get back into the swing of things, as she’s just announced plans to return with a new album, titled 99¢, on
January 22nd via Atlantic. Update – Wednesday, December 16th at 10:30 a.m. CT: The album’s release date has been pushed back to February 26th.
What’s more, Santi White has unveiled the groovy, feel-good lead single, “Can’t Get Enough of Myself”, via Zane Lowe’s Beats 1 program. After one spin, I’d imagine anxious fans, who’ve waited years for this comeback news, would be saying “can’t get enough of Santigold” — and they’d be so right.
Listen in below.
Santigold filmed a music video with iLoveMakonnen during the Made in America festival in Philly, so expect that collaboration to surface in the near future and find a place on 99¢.
Update – Thursday, November 5th: Santigold has revealed the album’s tracklist. According to a press release, it features contributions from Vampire Weekend’s Rostam Batmanglij, Hit Boy, and iLoveMakonnen, among others. She’s also shared a faux advert in which she promotes a 3D selfie printer, which you can find below.
