Santigold (& Karen O.) Return With “Go”
We haven’t heard much from Santigold since her 2008 breakout debut, excluding of course, the seriously over-played Bud Lite commercials featuring her track ‘Lights Out.’ Fortunately she’s making a comeback with “Go”, a single supposedly off of an upcoming sophomore LP. The track also features a few verses from Yeah Yeah Yeahs’ front woman, Karen O., a collaboration that seems appropriate given their similar female indie cred. Despite a playful beat, lyrically the Philadelphia based singer has taken a more serious tone:
“It’s about the difficulties of holding onto what’s yours, everything from your ideas and energy, to your confidence…. The NEW American Dream is to become rich and famous by happenstance- or sex tapes- and ot get there with as little work or talent as possible. And as a result, we are suffering- though many of us don’t know it- as quality becomes a notion of the past”.
