News Santigold cancels North America tour

“I will not continue to sacrifice myself for an industry that has become unsustainable for, and uninterested in the welfare of the artists it is built upon.”

Following the release of this month’s album ‘Spirituals’, Santigold has announced that she will be cancelling her North American “Holified” tour.

Sharing a note on Instagram, she says, “I’m coming to you with the honesty that is inherent in my music. How could I release Spirituals, an album about honoring yourself and refusing to cross your own boundaries, and not take this opportunity to do just that for myself? I want you to understand that I am proud to be canceling this tour when it means that I am proclaiming that I, the person who writes the songs, is as important to me as the songs. I will not continue to sacrifice myself for an industry that has become unsustainable for, and uninterested in the welfare of the artists it is built upon.”

Not so much reigniting the spark that drew so many to her sound first time around, but a decent job of drawing a line from old to new and updating it.
