M.I.A. has been dropping tracks here and there over the last year. Earlier this year she revealed the completion of a new album, but she was unsure if it was ever going to get released. Today, M.I.A. confirmed the title and release date for her fifth studio album AIM, which will be out on Interscope Records September 9th.
Her forthcoming album, AIM, will also be her last solo release. According to Paste Magazine, in an interview with Mac, during which she debuted “Go Off,” M.I.A. said that AIM would likely be her last album, but that she hopes to continue making new music following it.
The rapper and producer confirmed the news during Annie Mac’s Radio 1 show, while debuting her new song, ‘Go Off’. The song is a collaboration with Skrillex and Blaqstarr.
Not long after, M.I.A. released her self-directed music video for the track, “Go Off”. The video includes clips of explosions in barren desert landscapes under a watermark that reads, “MIA go off” throughout the entire video. Is this video meant to signify M.I.A. has had enough?
