Published Jun 17, 2013We've given up speculating about when M.I.A.'s new album Mantagi will finally arrive, but here's another taste of the long-delayed collection in the form of the new single "Bring the Noize."
The track, which Pretty Much Amazing noted leaked through New Zealand's iTunes, is a sonic assault of clattering beats, in-your-face rapping and all-around audio excess. Then, just when you think you've got the track sussed out, it unexpectedly slows down for a melodic outro.
UPDATE: M.I.A. has also rolled out some new tour dates, which you can see below. They include Canadian shows in Toronto and Montreal.
7/17 Montreal, QC - Metropolis
7/18 Toronto, ON - Danforth Music Hall
7/20 Detroit, MI - Royal Oak Music Hall
7/21 Chicago, IL - Pitchfork Music Festival
8/10-11 Tokyo and Osaka, Japan - Summer Sonic
9/5-8 Isle of Wight, England - Bestival
