Santigold Returns With “Radio”: Hear Her ‘Paper Towns’ Track
Santigold returns with “Radio,” her first new material since contributing soundtrack cuts to the Girls compilation and The Hunger Games: Catching Fire OST. This one is off the Paper Towns soundtrack — which coincidentally has “Search Party,” a song by newcomer Sam Bruno that sounds like exactly the sort of hazed-out summer swagger anthem Santigold paved the way for with her 2008 debut.
As for “Radio,” Santi White alternates between her rap-singing blend and kind of yelling her way through the chorus, over a blown-out, dub-inflected beat. Rather than an indicator of the direction she’s going in for her third album, it feels more like a self-consciously anthemic movie tie-in, which I guess is a good thing?
Hear it below.
Paper Towns hits theaters on July 24, and the soundtrack is out July 10.
