M.I.A. teased a new song Thursday on her Instagram account, and now she’s dropped the track in full. It’s called “Borders” and is available now on major streaming services.
“Borders” follows “Broader Than A Border,” the two-song “scroll” that the British-Sri Lankan genre-busting rapper released earlier this month. M.I.A. has said that before she releases her upcoming album Matahdatah, the follow-up to 2013’s Matangi, she’ll share brief installments of tracks and short films she refers to as “scrolls.”
“It’s like a journal,” she told EW earlier this year. “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.”
