This likely won’t stay online long.
M.I.A. is expected to release a new album this year and has spent the last several months giving glimpses of what it might sound like. Today she’s released two songs, titled ‘Foreign Friend’ and ‘MIA OLA’, on a single Soundcloud stream which she says comes “LIVE FROM THE MEXICAN BORDER” and is paired with the striking image of people climbing a large metal fence.
The song is available for download, but might not stay up for long due to the prominent and likely unlicensed sample of the Lion King on ‘MIA OLA’. M.I.A. has even asked people on Twitter to pirate the song before “Disney shut it down”. Listen to both new tracks below and revisit her recent single ‘Borders’ for more.
