Listen to M.I.A.’s New Mix
The new mix serves a couple of purposes. ‘Matangi’ was put together for the fashion house Kenzo, which premiered the mix earlier today at a fashion show in Paris. The mix also doubles as a preview of M.I.A.’s upcoming album, also named ‘Matangi,’ which should be out sometime this year, after the controversial artist wipes out some of the positive vibes her record company heard.
M.I.A.’s fourth album was originally scheduled for release in April but was pushed back so she could record more music. Apparently at least seven new cuts are now in the can. And with the release of this great ‘Matangi’ mix today, it looks like it won’t be too much longer before an official release date is announced.
If this eight-minute preview is any indication, ‘Matangi’ should be a great rebound for M.I.A., whose last album, 2010′s ‘Maya,’ was met with some critical shrugs (for the record, we really like it). The album’s first single, the great ‘Bad Girls,’ came out last year.
