Artist marks first new material since 2013 by saying: "summer is coming"
MIA has shared a new song titled ‘Can See Can Do’.
The song is MIA’s first new music since the release of ‘Matangi’ in 2013. Tweeting about her new music, MIA first decided she would upload a song by the title of ‘All My People’ but opted to save that song “until all my people are ready.”
Instead, fans were given ‘Can See Can Do’, which can be heard below.
Last year MIA’s climactic stage invasion at Lovebox festival was cut short, with the artist expressing frustration throughout the gig in London’s Victoria Park.
During her headline set the sound across the field cut out, and the video screens went black. As the crowd started booing, a performance of ‘Double Bubble Trouble’ was cut short, MIA disappeared and the stage invaders were hurriedly ushered away.
In January MIA appeared on Channel 4 News to say that she still wants former Sri Lankan president Mahinda Rajapaksa to face a war crimes trial, but that the priority is getting the country’s Tamils their basic needs.
