Santigold, Karen O: Go

April 14, 2011

Santigold Karen OSantigold returns with the stunning single streaming above, in which Yeah Yeah Yeahs frontwoman Karen O co-stars (seriously, when was the last time O hasn’t been brilliant) on the bridge, guitarist Nick Zinner guests, and the great Q-Tip lends a hand on production. In an interview alongside the track’s premiere over on Jay-Z’s new Life +  Times website, Santigold says of the track’s chanting call for revolution: “On one hand it’s a challenge, beckoning any would-be usurpers to come show and prove. On the other, it’s a call to myself to rise to the occasion.”
