On Tuesday, we wondered exactly what Jay-Z's "Life + Times" would bring to the table. Today we got the answer: Santigold released her new track, "GO", on the site. The song, a collaboration with the Yeah Yeah Yeahs' Karen O, is a synth-y romp featuring a driving drum beat that begs to be pumped out of club speakers, while Karen O's cameo recalls her Fever To Tell repetitions and snarls.

"GO" was produced by Santigold with help from Q-Tip and Switch, along with YYYs guitarist Nick Zinner proving some licks. She spoke to Jay's site and said the meaning of the song as dual: "On one hand it's a challenge, beckoning any would-be usurpers to come show and prove. On the other, it's a call to myself to rise to the occasion," she says.

In speaking with the site, Santigold also touched on her frustrations with her as-of-now unreleased second album, exclaiming that when she met Karen O, she "was probably bitching about working on my record, which makes up most of my tired conversation these days."

Listen to "GO" here.
