Most of the world knows Santi White by the name Santigold, her stage name, and the title of the 2008 debut album that got everyone talking. Now it’s the Philly-born singer’s upcoming album that’s making headlines. Coinciding with the NYT premiere of the cover art for the May 1 album Master Of My Make Believe, is the release of Santi’s second video off the album: an island adventure for the single “Disparate Youth.”
The drowsy track features a mix of synth, reggae beats and a title that knowingly or not calls out the respected names working on Master — in this case, Dave Sitek of TV On The Radio, whose acclaimed debut album was Desperate Youth, Bloodthirsty Babe. The video itself is as different from the earlier-released “Big Mouth” as it could possibly, with muted colors and an actual plot. Here Santi treks through a “Lost”-like landscape in search of enlightenment, which she may or may not find after encountering the painted boys of an island tribe. The single drops April 9.
