M.I.A. – /\/\/\Y/\
Out July 13, 2010
Your favorite Sri Lankan, M.I.A., drops her semi-eponymous album /\/\/\Y/\ on July 13th. A few singles have leaked demonstrating the strange evolution from her global party-starter tracks like “Paper Planes” to the electro-industrial “Born Free.”
This new album is set to feature a few of her favorite DJ’s tearing up the track. The newest track to “leak” is this fantastic mess:
Now, I haven’t been THIS excited about leaked tracks since Kanye’s 808s and Heartbreak. I am sure Interscope will change some of the production. The majority of the unofficial singles do not sound finalized or ready to release.
Let us pray to our individual Gods (read: Thom Yorke) that this album does not disappoint.
Are you thrown off by M.I.A.’s digital ruckus?
