After expressing frustration with her record label and threatening to leak her album, M.I.A. is finally able to share new music, and the first taste of her forthcoming album is a collaboration with Skrillex and Blaqstarr.
Word first surfaced of the collab last year when M.I.A. shared a photo of Skrillex at his computer. Now it's finally out and the album, titled AIM, is set to be released on September 9. According to M.I.A. the album has "mad people coming together on it," and it's her "cleanest album" yet. She also says it's her last record, but that remains to be seen.
Premiered by Annie Mac on BBC Radio 1, the new track has a futuristic middle-eastern vibe, with a hard hitting bass laying the foundation for M.I.A.'s signature flow. Listen to the track below and look out for more new music coming soon.
