  • It’s been four years since we last had a full-length from Philly-based dynamo Santigold, but the eclectic artist announced her third album, 99¢, will be out in early 2016. Check out the first single “Can’t Get Enough Of Myself” below, via Zane Lowe’s Beats 1. In an interview with Lowe, Santigold explains the album title: ““Everything is a product at this point, including people and relationships. And everything is undervalued!” [Stereogum]

  • We’ve also got new music to share from Brooklyn shoegazers DIIV, who return in 2016 with their sophomore full-length, Is the Is Are. Check out the single “Bent (Roi’s Song)” below, which shows the boys haven’t dampened their dreamy sound one bit. Is the Is Are hits the streets February 5th, 2016 via Captured Tracks.

  • Elfin harpist Joanna Newsom stopped by the BBC show Later… With Jools Holland to perform two tracks from her latest, Divers. Watch her live rendition of the track “Leaving the City” below. Newsom kicks off her US east coast tour in December. Check out dates here. [Pitchfork]

  • Oneohtrix Point Never (aka Brooklyn artist Daniel Lopatin) shares a new video from his forthcoming full-length, Garden of Delete. Check out the video and the prelude clip for “Sticky Drama” below. The clips were co-directed by Lopatin with Jon Rafman, and were commissioned by Warp Records and the Zabludowicz Collection, a museum in London. (An edited version is showing as part of Rafman’s current exhibit there.) Garden of Delete hits stores November 13th via Warp Records. [Stereogum]
