After earning acclaim with the riveting video for “Bad Girls,” M.I.A. crafts another visual masterpiece for her new single “Bring the Noize.”
“It was written in lots of different circumstances, but I guess it’s coming out at a time where I think in America it’s kinda cool to hear something like this,” she said of the Switch and Surkin-produced song. “It’s in keeping with what I released before, so I’m gonna gradually ease people into the new sound as the album goes on.”
Her fourth album Matangi is due this fall on N.E.E.T./Interscope.
She will perform three club dates leading up to the Pitchfork Festival in Chicago on July 21.
