Santigold, the Philadelphia-bred artist who dropped her debut album Santogold in 2008, is back. Today she released the video for the first single off of her sophomore effort, Master of My Make-Believe, which comes out on May 1. The video, for "Disparate Youth," was co-directed by fellow Wesleyan graduate Sam Fleischner and finds Santi traipsing through a jungle, surrounded by little kids covered in white paint. She uses her ring to unlock some kids' minds, and then Santi is transported into a magical tribal gathering of kids, where they all sing the end of the song together in front of a tree that seems exactly like the Soul Tree from Avatar. Sounds pretty wild, right? Watch the video below.
