New album 'Matahdatah' is expected shortly
MIA has shared a new song online, titled ‘MIA OLA’.
The track, which goes by the extended title of ‘MIA OLA – Foreign Friend’, was recently uploaded to the musician’s Soundcloud page. Listen below.
MIA is expected to release her new album ‘Matahdatah’ shortly. It will be the follow-up to 2013’s ‘Matangi’ and her fifth LP to date.
MIA previously teased the song with a video uploaded to Instagram. In its caption, she wrote: “free download play the shit out of this summa! To all my fly pirates stay blessed!!!”
MIA was recently involved in a legal dispute with French football team Paris Saint-Germain after her ‘Borders’ video saw her wearing a PSG shirt with its sponsor Fly Emirates changed to read “Fly Pirates”. The club took objection to this.
Speaking about the issue, MIA said that she didn’t expect the issue to arise because she “was thinking about the bigger picture, which is that way more people are going to die at sea if we don’t do something”.
