Santigold has returned with a new song, High Priestess.

Recorded virtually during the COVID-19 lockdown, the uptempo track fuses elements of electronica, '80s rock, pop, punk and rap for the genre-blurring musician's first new solo release since her 2018 mixtape, 'I Don’t Want: The Gold Fire Sessions'.

Commenting on the accompanying Frank Ockenfels-directed video, she said:

"For my song High Priestess I made a video vignette instead of a traditional full length music video. I wanted my art to be free of a prefab structure, and the short felt more powerful to me because it lets you catch a feeling, just for as long as it takes to get there, and then you’re off to somewhere else. Like entering another dimension, another world, tuning in to the emotion, the urgency, the hardship, the beauty, and then before you know it you’re into the next."

In recent years, the Philadelphia artist has collaborated with Tyler, the Creator on his Grammy Award-winning album 'Igor', and in 2021 she featured on Man Next Door from the late Reggae legend U-Roy's posthumous album 'Solid Gold U-Roy'.
