M.I.A. Names Album, Bumps Release Date, Unleashes New Song


We witnessed a ginger genocide (gingercide?) with the release of M.I.A.’s controversial “Born Free” video, and now one of Time’s “World’s Most Influential People” has released another single from her new album, now officially titled /\/\/\Y/\.

The song, “XXXO,” can be downloaded on M.I.A.’s dizzying NEET Recordings blog.

M.I.A.’s new LP, one of the 25 albums we’re looking forward to this summer, will now be released July 13, a two-week bump from the original June 29 date.
