Philly’s own quirky girl, Santi White aka Santigold, is back with the first “proper” single from her upcoming album, Master of My Make-Believe. 

Although another song leaked last month, Disparate Youth is the lead single from Santigold’s latest musical mashup.

While the UK paper the Guardian called Santigold’s previously released track Big Mouth a “fairly ridiculous…clattering, drum-heavy racket that sounded like a lost MIA song,” Disparate Youth is a much more precise offering complete with perfectly placed guitar riffs, ’80s-sounding keys, and a hint of a Caribbean vibe.

Master of My Make-Believe, due out May 1is Santigold’s first album in nearly four years and from the sound of things, it promises to be a good one.

    Santigold produced and co wrote Res’ first CD “How I Do”.

  • Pearlsrevealed

    Speaking of Res, when I first started exploring social media and blogs a few years ago I stumbled upon a video she had just released at that time called “There’s No Way”. I started checking for her on Myspace as she released several tracks. She finally released a CD of these random tracks a couple of years ago called “Black Girls Rock”. She is SO underrated!
