Santigold made her return to music yesterday when she released her mixtape inspired EP I Don’t Want: The Gold Fire Sessions. While working with Dre Skull on the project, the initially met in a writing session and bonded over their shared passion for Reggae and Afro-Caribbean music.
They decided to explore their ideas for a mixtape, which ultimately grew into a 10 song recording session, which they came to call The Gold Fire Sessions. Over the course of two weeks, they recorded the bulk of the songs, playing with Reggae and Afro-Caribbean influences while pushing and pulling their pillars with Santi’s singular point of view. In celebration of the release, Santigold will be doing festival dates and select dates on Lauryn Hill’s The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill 20th Anniversary tour, full dates below.
