I’ll admit that I haven’t been following M.I.A‘s love life all too closely, but this track she released yesterday makes me suspect she’s got some heavy shit going on.
With a slower tempo than she typically uses, ”UNBREAK my mixtape” is a sample-heavy break up song containing the lyric I now I want to use in my real life: “While I get my life sorted, here’s a mixtape.”
The tracklist for her upcoming album Matangi (November 5 via Interscope) hasn’t been released yet, so it’s not clear whether this track will appear on it. My guess is it won’t be, so this is more of a gift from M.I.A. to you – and likely a fuck you to someone out there as well:
Listen for: the Blur “Tender” sample at 2:36.
