M.I.A. just tweeted the above video, “There’s Space for Ol Dat I See.” (She’s also been tweeting a lot about Sri Lanka’s portrayal in the NYT article Sugi blogged about, but I’m not gonna link those pictures.) I’m kinda diggin’ how basic the song sounds in this video.
MIA says she expects her third album to be released as early as this early spring…”I wanted it to be like, no gimmicks,” she declared. “It’s my third album and I have to kind of confront whether I am a musician or not… I wanted to make something that you could play that isn’t like trendy just for three months, or the length of a DJ’s attention span.” [nme]
Can’t wait, especially with songs with titles like, “I’m Down Like Your Internet Connection.”
