Apparently, sometimes it’s a good idea to harangue pop stars on Twitter. After a group of fans made a point out of Twitter-bothering M.I.A. about her complete lack of new music, she caved and sent a new song to one fan, who then shared it on YouTube. The song, “AtTENTion,” is a tense and squiggly thing — no “Galang,” but it’ll do for now. Listen to it below.
A new M.I.A. album called Matangi will be arriving, I don’t know, sometime probably. Hey, remember “Bad Girls“? That feels like a million years ago now.
