Known for breaking all regular convention and always being that bit more creative, M.I.A. has unveiled an 8-minute mega mix of music rather than release a standard mixtape in anticipation for her Matangi album, which is due for release on April 15th.
The creative and diverse artist teams with fashion label Kenzo for the eight-and-a-half minute “Matangi Mix” which blends sounds of electro and heavy drums with Hindu vocals and flutes for the typically unexpected and indescribable sound, with M.I.A. only joining the energetic music with her vocals five minutes into the song.
It has also been revealed that Hit-Boy has been producing for the new album, saying that they have made “seven incredible records.” He continues with praise saying, “She’s really creative. She’s doing exactly what comes to her. That’s why we were able to crank out that many songs.”
