Santigold has released another single, "Nothing," from her anticipated new album Spirituals, which is out September 9 via Little Jerk Records (pre-order on picture disc vinyl). "Nothing" is darkly bouncy and electronic, and comes with a video short directed by Frank Ockenfels featuring Santigold as an exotic and haunting black bird. She says:

This video vignette was inspired by a Wangechi Mutu image called Snake Eater. I had seen the image years ago and when I was thinking up visual ideas for this song, this piece came to mind. I loved the idea of a being that is woman but also beyond human in some way, and even unclassifiable. A being for whom there is no name, no category, who is totally unique, and fierce. I wanted to become this type of creature in this video because I don’t believe we have to know how to name or define what we’re seeing to accept that it exists, that it’s beautiful and powerful and worthy of being exactly what it is. How exciting to encounter a being so magnificent that it is beyond our imaginations. How exciting to find that that beast is living within you and to set it free.

Watch the video below.

Santigold also announced that South African artist Sho Madjozi will join her on the "Holified Tour" this fall, which stops in NYC on October 17 at The Great Hall at Avant Gardner. All dates are below, and you can pre-order Spirituals on picture disc vinyl at our store.
