In July, M.I.A. released an audiovisual project called Matahdatah Scroll 01 Broader Than a Border, a six-minute clip that featured her songs "Warriors" and "Swords." She also unleashed her video for "The New International Sound Pt. II," which featured 36,000 Chinese children fighters.
Consider this a sign for new material to come from the British-Sri Lankan rep, who is working on her upcoming LP, Matahdatah.
She told EW earlier this year about the project, "It’s like a journal. And the journal happens to be a really wide journey. It’s about borders and it’s kind of testing the human idea of that — whether it’s physical borders, geographical or philosophical ones.”
