M.I.A. Offers Preview of New Track, “Bring the Noize”

M.I.A. has been pretty much MIA since dropping her 2010 mixtape Vicki Leekx. There was the unreleased 2007 outtake “Doobie,” some mixes and one-off 2012 single “Bad Girls,” but other than that it’s been the sound of crickets from Camp Arulpragasam.

The British-by-way-of-Sri-Lanka emcee is gearing up for a comeback. This week she’ll drop the new cut “Bring the Noize” on BBC Radio 1’s Zane Lowe. She also hinted at the new Jesus Piece-inspired visuals for the track’s video via her Vine page. You can hear a soundbite of “Bring the Noize” via her website, and see a sneak peek of her “Bring the Noize” video below. M.I.A.’s fourth album, tentatively titled Matangi, is rumored to be coming in 2013.
