Santigold releases ‘The Keepers’ as her new single from Master of My Make-Believe. The video cleverly reflects the concept of the song – the notion of disillusionment in America. For whatever reason Santi’s most recent offering failed to make a impact – probably a combination of timing and poor promotion – and although it doesn’t reinvent the rule book like many were probably hoping it would, it is a strong listen.
After releasing two brand new songs (‘Big Mouth’ & ‘Disparate Youth’) over the past couple months, Sanitgold has revealed the artwork for her forthcoming second album Master of My Make-Believe – due out May 1st.
Shot by photographer Jason Schmidt, the cover depicts Santi as three different characters: as warriors in “Bond-girl, gold” bodysuits, an army officer (painted by artist Kehinde Wiley) and a mafia Don, which she describes as “some sort of ruler in my own reality”.
After the jump watch a behind the scenes video of the photoshoot where she gives further explanation into the concept behind the albums artwork.
