Listen: 'Matangi' By M.I.A. Is Available For Streaming

In this article…

M.I.A uploaded her new album Matangi in full on the internet four days prior to its official release. 

A year ago, the artist described her latest album's genre as being "paul simon on acid" and said "no one in the industry collected blows in the last three years as much as me, this is a f*** you to them and a thank you to you."

Consequence of Sound mentions M.I.A.'s recent interview with The Gold Coast Bulletin, where she revealed that her initial recordings for this album were rejected since the material wasn't dark enough. "It's like, 'We just built you up as the public enemy No. 1 and now you're coming out with all this positive stuff," she said. 

Given the apparent difficulty M.I.A. faced with the recording process, she said this album is probably her last full-length work. "It's just one of those things where I've given up at this point," she said. "I was literally going to start putting out records from my bedroom. This was my last stab at it - I'm going to hand it in and wait for it to go out the way albums go out."

It will be a shame if she really does call it quits since M.I.A. is a unique and influential artist. Neither her music nor her lyrics really conform to any standard, and losing a voice like that will be unfortunate. Listen to her album and savor new M.I.A. while you still can.
