Published Jan 30, 2012M.I.A. hasn't released an album since 2010's iffy ///Y/, but that may soon change as she has just released a new single in advance of a forthcoming LP.
The new song is called "Bad Girls," and it's a reworked version of a track that appeared on her Vicki Leekx mixtape. This Danja-produced number favours repetitive chants over melody, and you can check this worldbeat-inspired tune over at Pitchfork.
This song will be officially released as a single tomorrow (January 31) via Interscope Records, and a video from director Romain Gavras is due on Friday (February 3). M.I.A. is currently working on her new as-yet-untitled album, which is expected to arrive this summer.
