British vocalist M.I.A. has recently leaked a new track online. Titled Attention, the track sees the songstress stick to her percussive roots as she once again lyrically relies on her cultural heritage. ALthough it is yet to be officially confirmed, it’s quite safe to say that it is a legitimate track.
The London-born girl will touch down in Australia as part of the 2013 Summadayze festival, where she will headline amongst the likes of The Chemical Brothers and Knife Party. According to Popjustice, M.I.A leaked the track herself after fans began to bombard her for a new track. In light of that, Attention isn’t a single by any stretch. It is most likely a B-Side that M.I.A. had no intention of releasing, but she probably felt inclined to get the fans off her back. I wouldn’t take this as any indication of her future sound. Regardless, give it a listen.
