Santigold is kicking off 2016 by sharing a new track and accompanying video, “Chasing Shadows,” from her third album 99¢ due out February 26 via Atlantic Records. Vampire Weekend’s Rostam Batmanglij produced the track, which also features backing vocals from the West Los Angeles Children’s Choir.

“‘Chasing Shadows’ is about with the conflicted reality of an artist’s life. Caught in the web we spin around ourselves, a mixture of hubris and the guise of perfection, we fear being swallowed up by our own ambition. Never in the moment, as quickly as we reach our goals, our gaze shifts to those still looming in the distance. We judge ourselves harshly for not being further on the path and revel in the anxiety of racing the rate of consumption. The lyrics weigh the value of going against the current to maintain artistic integrity, and the feelings of isolation and vacancy bred by a persona that is always “on” and ready for show,” says Santigold.

The video was premiered on Tidal today, was directed by Elliott Lester (Nightingale, Blitz, Love Is the Drug), watch above.
