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


| June 16, 2013 - 10:25 pm

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.
