With her eagerly-awaited new album landing in the coming months, Santigold has now unveiled the next cut to be lifted from her forthcoming full-length.
The new single 'Nothing' comes accompanied by a stunning new video, directed by Frank Ockenfels, and follows on from the previously shared tracks 'Ain't Ready' and 'High Priestess' in previewing her new LP 'Spirituals', which is out on the 9th September via her own label Little Jerk Records.
Speaking about the new offering, she said, "'Nothing' is a song I wrote about invisibility. It’s a song for anyone who has not been seen, and for me it was an opportunity to explore how that feels. I wrote 'Nothing' in the midst of the Black Lives Matter protests, and in writing the lyrics I was able to release a heaviness that I did not know I was carrying. Being Black and being a woman, particularly one who has chosen the creative path that I have chosen, I have always felt invisible to a degree. People see only what they think they know, or what they think I should be. Or sometimes, they see nothing at all. This song is about the burden of existing beneath a veil of nothingness. And the strength it requires just to be, despite it."
