She took her time putting the finishing touches on her new album, but now that Santigold is finished with 'Master of My Make-Believe,' she's hitting the ground running -- and fans can expect to hear more music in the not-too-distant future, including her collaboration with Odd Future's Earl Sweatshirt.

Mr. Sweatshirt, who recently completed his stint in a Samoa military school, has returned to action and is hard at work reclaiming his status as one of the most in-demand MCs in hip-hop -- but while others have been clamoring to work with him, he's been pining to work with Santigold. She talked about their meeting with MTV, recalling how it all started with a tweet.

"I saw a tweet. I guess somebody re-tweeted that Earl said 'I like Santigold, would love to do something.' And I was like, 'OK!' " she told the network. "I mean, he's so cool, he's such a cute, awesome dude. And they were at Coachella, and they were the first ones up onstage — we invite people up onstage [during her performance] — and they came and did some major booty-shaking moves. And a couple of them came to our MOCA show in LA. We did this event that Mike D curated ... and they came there and caught the show."

As for when fans can hear the finished result, Santigold doesn't have a firm date, but she says it's definitely on her list of things to do. "I don't have many plans these days. I just kinda, like, soon as I can get stuff done. It's something I really want to do, so hopefully it will be done soon."
