Santigold Announces New Album ‘Spirituals

Art radical and multi-platform creative visionary Santigold has announced her fourth album Spirituals due out September 9. In celebration, she has released a new single and video short, “Ain’t Ready”. Check out the song below with the Santigold song tattoos all over it.


 Santigold shares, “‘Ain’t Ready’ is a song I started with IllangeloDre Skull and Sbtrkt came on board to help bring it home, another true collaboration of such distinct and amazing talent. It was one of those songs where as soon as I opened my mouth the whole melody just poured out. There were no words but all the emotion was there. To me, the song sounded full of struggle and perseverance. It sounded like a battle, and I wanted the production to sound tough, to mirror that grit. I struggled to find the right lyrics at first, but when I got them right, and I started singing them one night in my studio alone, I cried. This song was my own battle song. It’s about taking the hits that life brings and getting back up. It’s about change and moving forward. It’s about faith and vision. And it’s about stepping into your own power.

Spirituals is the first Santigold album released on her own label Little Jerk Records and it will be distributed by Secretly Distribution. The album captures the feeling of surviving in the modern world while elevating yourself to new places. It was mostly recorded during the 2020 lockdown. Santigold says, “All of a sudden there I was with three small children out of school—just-turned-two-year-old twins and a six-year-old—I was cooking, cleaning, doing laundry and changing diapers from morning to night, with three little kids coming in and out of my bed throughout each night like musical chairs. I was losing touch with the artist me, stuck in a part of myself that was too small. I felt the other parts of me were shrinking, disappearing.”
