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.
