While it doesn’t have a release date yet, Santigold has revealed that Master of My Make-Believe is the title of her second album. In an interview with V Magazine, she explained where the title comes from:
No one wants to be real anymore. Wikipedia is always wrong. No one fact checks and it’s not even a priority. Reality TV is more popular than ever, and it’s the fakest thing ever. Where is there place for truth in all of that? My record is called Master of My Make-Believe because I want it to be about creating your own reality.
Santi’s collaborators on the sophomore project include Grammy-nominated producer Greg Kurstin, Switch of Major Lazer and Nick Zinner from Yeah Yeah Yeahs. Santi is no stranger to working with Yeah Yeah Yeahs—last April she released a single with lead singer Karen O called “Go.” Hopefully, we won’t have to wait too much longer to see what Santi’s Make-Believe has in store for us.
UPDATE, Tuesday, 2/21/12: Master of My Make-Believe is slated for a May 1st release on Downtown Records. (via Pitchfork)
