Listen: M.I.A.’s ‘Matangi’ Preview Mix

Written by Kiel Egging on March 5, 2013

If you’re after a bit of tribal-sounding goodness to spice up your evening, or just want a bit of new M.I.A., check out the eight-minute mega-mix that she has created for fashion house Kenzo.

The mix, which you can stream below via her Soundcloud page, is music that is going to be used by Kenzo at Paris Fashion Week to showcase its Fall/Winter 2013 collection.

But, more excitingly for fans of the British electro/indie star, it also contains snippets of tunes from her forthcoming album Matangi, which is expected to come out next month.

A lot of the mix is instrumental; however, there are moments in there where we hear some sets of lyrics from the Paper Planes hitmaker.

As has been previously reported, M.I.A. was supposed to release Matangi in late 2012. However, when she came to Australia for Summadayze at the start of the year, she claimed that the reason for the album’s delay was because her US record label sent her back into the studio, as they found the album “too positive”.
