When you take a break from album releases as long as Santigold, one of the fun parts is seeing the artist collaborate with a slew of recent talents. She previously shared with us a pretty good duet with iLoveMakkonen, and now “Chasing Shadows.” Santigold has the mic to herself, but Vampire Weekend’s Rostam Batmanglij produces the track. His fingerprints are all over the vibe, and the video’s a good match: a hint of retro style on the surface, but modern in a way that is hard to pin down. Rostam is seemingly going to be around a lot this year.
99 cents is out February 26 via Atlantic Records.
