New Music From Santigold: “Banshee”

Santigold

Santigold has shared the exhilarating single “Banshee” from her forthcoming album 99¢, out on February 26th via Atlantic Records. The song deals with overcoming self-doubt,  silencing detractors, and finding the strength to take risks and fearlessly pursue your aspirations. The message is underscored by one of Santigold’s most impassioned vocals and an explosive rhythm. “Banshee” was produced by Patrik Berger and John Hill with additional production by Linus “Style of Eye” Eklow of Miike Snow. Listen to “Banshee” now.

In celebration of the release of 99¢, Santigold has announced an in-store performance and signing at Rough Trade NYC on Tuesday, March 1. Beginning on the morning of March 1 when the store opens, anyone who purchases a copy of the album will get a wristband for the performance.

Santigold recently announced a North American spring tour, the “We Buy Gold Tour”. Renown for her monumental live shows, Santigold is taking it all to the next level in the brand new stage production. Tickets available here: http://smarturl.it/SantiTour

“Banshee” follows the release of “Chasing Shadows” from 99¢. Vampire Weekend’s Rostam Batmanglij produced the track which features backing vocals from the West Los Angeles Children’s Choir. The mesmerizing video directed by Elliott Lester, explores the conflicted reality of an artist’s life, touching on themes of ambition and isolation. Watch it now.

Following her last album, Master of My Make Believe, Santigold wanted to explore new corners of her sound and different ways to convey her vision and political commentary.  She worked with new collaborators Patrik Berger, Rostam Batmanglij, Hit-Boy, HazeBanga, Justin Raisen, Zeds Dead, ILOVEMAKONNEN, and Sam Dew and longtime cohorts John Hill, Dave Sitek, and Doc McKinney. The result is the bright and big sound of 99¢ that takes the genre-defying fearlessness Santigold has become known for to new places.
