WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange has been under house arrest in the UK for a while, but he’s still launching a brand-new talk show called The World Tomorrow, which airs on the government-funded Russian news network RT and which he’s taping at home. And though glamor isn’t exactly a big part of the WikiLeaks aesthetic, Assange still got a big name to contribute The World Tomorrow’s theme music: M.I.A., whose Vicki Leekx mixtape was partly inspired by Assange’s work. M.I.A.’s theme is instrumental, and it’s really just 30 seconds of synthetic thumps and burbles; the big news is that she’s doing it. (She’ll also appear on a forthcoming episode of the show.) Below, hear her music in the intro and outro of the first episode.

More episodes of The World Tomorrow will be posted here.

  1. Cool stuff. Love that M.I.A.’s music is featured here. The track is an edit of “Story To Be Told” produced by M.I.A. and Rusko on her album “/\/\ /\ Y /\”.
