Here is the recap: Atlantic Records have announced that they will be releasing Santigold's third album, 99 [cents], on January 22nd and have premiered the first single, "Can't Get Enough of Myself (feat. B.C.)".

The new single is available now at all digital retailers and as an instant download with select album preorders. The track can be streamed here. The label sent over the following details:

On 99, Santigold explores the commercial nature of our world and the ways in which we package ourselves and our lives for consumption. "We have no illusion that we don't live in this world where everything is packaged. People's lives, persona, everything, is deliberate, and mediated. It can be dark and haunting and tricky, and freak us out, but it can be also be silly and fun and we can learn to play with it," she says. She also explores our fascination with perfection and our inherent inability to attain it. The use of playful satire, social critique, and self-examination to explore these themes is reflected in the album's cover art, a collaboration with photographer Haruhiko Kawaguchi, finds Santigold shrink-wrapped amongst her cluttered possessions ready for the store shelves.

Following her last album, the dark and cerebral Master of My Make Believe, Santigold wanted to explore new corners of her sound and different ways to convey her vision and political commentary. She worked with new collaborators Patrik Berger, Rostam Batmanglij, Hit Boy, Justin Raisen, ILOVEMAKONNEN, and Sam Dew and longtime cohorts John Hill, Dave Sitek, and Doc McKinney. The result is the bright and big sound of 99 that takes the genre-defying fearlessness Santigold has become known for to new places. - See the tracklist here.
