"I called this song "High Priestess" because this song was about my greatness," Santigold said in a press release. "I needed to be a witness to myself at that point, calling out my own power, my own fortitude, my own wisdom, because I felt like I had become disconnected from it, having been stripped out of the rhythm of life that I had cultivated for myself, and thrust into this smaller, one dimensional version of myself, grounded and isolated for too long. The lyrics are fun though, rap lyrics in general, boastful, cocky, but that’s what I was talking about underneath it all.”

Last year, Santigold appeared on The FADER Uncovered with Mark Ronson where she talked about her stint as an A&R assistant at Epic Records recording her debut single "Creator." She also briefly discussed an album she was in the process of mixing titled Spirituals that she described as "all over the place." Santigold's last release was 2018's I Don’t Want: The Gold Fire Sessions.
