Santigold will take her endless dance party across the US one more time this spring before heading back into the studio to record the follow up to her smash self-titled debut. Santigold will be performing with a full band and dancers for the first time in North America to bring her genre-blending sound to life. Virgin Records artist Trouble Andrew, who can be heard on the Santigold track â€œIâ€™m A Lady,â€ along with Downtown Recordsâ€™ singer/mc Amanda Blank will be the openers.
Santigold recently released â€œBrooklyn Go Hard,â€ a duet with Jay-Z produced by Kanye West that samples her current single â€œShove It,â€ which is the lead single from the Notorious B.I.G. biopic Notorious. She recently performed â€œShove Itâ€ on the debut week of Late Night with Jimmy Fallon.
Downtown/Lizard King released Santigoldâ€™s self-titled breakthrough CD in April 2008 and it instantly became one of last yearâ€™s most acclaimed albums garnering international raves. Critics and radio have championed the recordâ€™s standout singles â€œL.E.S. Artistes,â€ â€œCreatorâ€ and â€œShove It.â€ Both the album and singles made countless â€œBest of 2008â€ lists from Rolling Stone to The Wall Street Journal.
