Published May 22, 2015M.I.A. tapped French producer Surkin for last year's Matangi, and now she has returned the favour by singing on a song for Surkin's GENER8ION project.
"The New International Sound Pt. II" is a dramatic anthem, with a big, booming mid-tempo beat and cinematic synths that set the urgent backdrop for M.I.A.'s robotized singing. But even with all of the processing and Auto-Tune, M.I.A. still retains her signature style.
Hear it below [via Pitchfork]. GENER8ION's self-titled EP is due out on June 15 on Bromance Records.
Meanwhile, M.I.A. has been rolling out some new material.
