It’s been a few years since Santigold released her debut album, and now she is back with a brand new single and the promise of a sophomore release.
“GO,” which features Karen O of the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, is a bouncy, hard-hitting track that serves as both a warning and an inspiration. Santigold gave some insight through a Q&A that is posted with the song: “In this song, “GO” has a dual meaning. On one hand it’s a challenge, beckoning any would-be usurpers to come show and prove. On the other, it’s a call to myself to rise to the occasion.”
The new single — produced by Q-Tip, Switch and Santigold, with guitars from Nick Zinner — is available for your listening pleasure on Jay-Z’s new site, Life+Times.
