Listen: Santigold Unveils New Track ‘Girls’
Written by Alex Langlands on 11th December, 2012
American songstress, Santigold, has unveiled a brand new track for the impending soundtrack to American hit TV show Girls. The song, titled Girls (naturally) is one of a few new tracks on the album, mixed in with songs currently breaking into the mainstream market. The track, built on synth and looped vocals, features a verse that sounds strikingly similar to a cheeky rap, something Santigold has never really done before. Regardless, Girls is available for your listening pleasure below.
Also featured on the album are the likes of Fun., Robyn, Icona Pop, The Vaccines, Belle & Sebastian and stacks more. In essence, it’s a Fuzzy Promotions wet dream. The album is set for release on January 8. Speaking out about the necessity for music in television, writer Lena Dunham said the following:
Music is such a huge part of my creative process. I make playlists to write by and listen to as I head to set in the morning, and I experiment in editing with songs that the characters would love and that accurately reflect their struggles. Girls‘ music supervisor Manish Raval and I are crazy about everything from the pop that teen girls devour to the niche indie rock from days of yore. To collaborate with Fueled by Ramen and so many artists who inspire me on this compilation is a dream.
