One of the benefits of the internet age – when a group of fans banded together to pester M.I.A. on twitter, she relented and emailed them a single new track, “aTENTtion,” which has since, of course, been leaked to youtube. It’s classic M.I.A. – a glitchy, maximalist beat with plenty of shouting kids grounds sharp, smart, political verses, reminding us of the best tracks on her Vicki Leekx mixtape. We’re not sure if this will wind up on her upcoming record Mathangi, but it’s definitely worth a listen anyway. Check it out.
