A while back we noticed that Santogold had some tracks featured in the Bud Light Lime campaign. As I was watching Top Chef re-runs tonight I had the pleasure of waking from my commercial break to the sounds of Santogold. Turns out her music is featured in a new Ford commercial. You can view the commercial here:
Also, out now is an exclusive track made for Converse by Santogold, Pharrell and Julian Casablancas as part of a campaign that Converse put together called, Three Artists, One Song. The track is called “My Drive Thru” and has a contagious guitar riff and features the falsetto Pharrell is famous for, N.E.R.D. beats and Santogold’s ability to make any song a dance anthem. It’s a good representation of each of the artists and it’s cool to see how 3 diverse artists can come together to make 1 track without sacrificing their individuality or sound. There’s supposed to be a video out soon and the track will be available for exclusive download on Converse.com beginning Tuesday, June 10th. If you want to hear it now check out Sterogum – they are streaming the song online. If you like this project, you’re in luck because there is more music to this centennial campaign. Up next? Tracks with Kid Sister, YACHT, Bradford Cox, members of Gallows, Fiery Furnaces, Does It Offend You, Yeah?, and Care Bears on Fire. For more info on the project check here.
