Pre-Order Santigold's Anticipated January 2016 Album From Amoeba In CD & Vinyl

99¢ is the title, not the price, of the anticipated, long overdue, third studio album by super-talented Philly born singer/rapper/songwriter/producer extraordinaire Santigold. Scheduled for a recently announced January 22nd, 2016 arrival date at Amoeba Music c/o Atlantic Records in both CD and limited edition clear vinyl formats, the album can now be pre-ordered from Amoeba. The 12 track new album, the mezzo-soprano born Santi White's first since 2012's Master Of My Make- Believe,  features the just released lead single "Can't Get Enough Of Myself (feat. BC)" (audio below).  Production credits will include such accomplished figures as Zeds Dead, Justin Raisen, Rostam Batmanglij (Vampire Weekend) and David Andrew Sitek (TV On The Radio) to name but some of her new album studio collaborators. Meanwhile the cover (above) for 99¢ is some of the best album cover art to come along in a minute. At a glance it aesthetically reminds me of the cover of Malcolm McLaren's 1983 album Duck Rock (left) with its colors and retro design.

Showing the artist lying in still-motion mode, along with a hodge-podge of her possessions, in a vacuum-packed plastic wrap with a yellow sticker slapped on the top left corner, 99¢'s cover art comes with a message. In a press release Santigold said that the cover was designed to capture our current consumerism age in which everything is pre-packaged and for sale at a price. "People’s lives, persona, everything, is deliberate, and mediated. ....We have no illusion that we don’t live in this world where everything is packaged," Santigold stated.

Pre-order 99¢ now in advance of its late January release in either CD or limited edition clear vinyl formats from Amoeba where you can also get such other Santigold releases as her 2008 debut album Santogold
