M.I.A. has a new track, entitled “Only 1 U,” that has been played and uploaded by London-based Internet radio station NTS.
There is no confirmation or denial that this track will appear on the upcoming Matangi, but Pitchfork reports that the beat echoes part of the Matangi mix that M.I.A. made for the Kenzo show at this year’s Paris Fashion Week. The stream is currently down, but we’ll update as soon as it’s back up.
Her new album has had some controversy surrounding it, allegedly for being “too positive,” and it was originally slated to be released in April. It is expected to drop in the early fall, but there is still no definite word on the date.
