Santagold...no Santygold....wait no Santogold...oh right SANTIGOLD has finally confirmed her sophomore album to Billboard.com today. MIA's protege had a wildly successful debut era, with critical & commercial success and a boatload of cred. She claims that the label interference has made the recording more difficult than the first time around, and while it has been annoying that she approves of every part of the new album 100%. She had this to say about the sound:
"While MIA is off being a bitter, contrived bitch who makes absolute shit music at this point...I am happy to see one of her proteges coming out with something that will be more genuine and fresh than Maya could ever hope. And since Rye Rye seems to never be able to get her debut off the ground, I am glad Santigold is here to save the day.
And while I was most excited by all the big dogs of the industry's releases in the early part of the year...the second half of the year seems just as packed with more interesting and probably better music.
