Santigold debuts new song 'Big Mouth' online
The first track from 'Master of My Make-Believe' was produced by Switch and Buraka Som Sistema
Produced by Switch and Buraka Som Sistema, the song is the first to be taken from her forthcoming new album, 'Master Of My Make-Believe'.
Speaking to V Magazine, Santigold explained that she has also worked with Greg Kurstin, Dave Sitek and Nick Zinner of the Yeah Yeah Yeahs on the record.
Part of the album was recorded in Jamaica. "I'm really hands-on with everything. It's the difference between an artist and a plain pop star, right?," said the singer. Of the album title, Santigold said:
My record is called Master of My Make-Believe because I want it to be about creating your own reality. I have a song called 'The Keepers': 'we're the keepers, while we sleep in America our house is burning down.'.
'Master Of My Make-Believe' will be her first album under the name Santigold, having called herself Santogold during the promotion of her debut album, which came out in 2008.
