In case you’re wondering why Santigold is touring with Red Hot Chili Peppers this year, it’s because she has a new project on the way. As we previously reported, her sophomore album, Master Of My Make-Believe, is due out sometime this year. And last month, she gave us a sampling of what we can expect on the release with comeback single “Big Mouth.”
Santi’s followed that pop-heavy tune with something equally accessible, though slightly more new wave-y. It’s “Disparate Youth,” a thick, slightly relaxed tune emphasized by guitar stabs, shimmering synths, and a Young Money-meets-tropical vibe. Tell me you don’t hear a hint of Drake’s “Headlines” in this track’s intro.
You can watch the pseudo-video for “Disparate Youth” below. It’s out tomorrow on iTunes. [Stereogum]
