M.I.A. released a new song from her forthcoming album "Matangi" this week, and its style is quite a departure from the songstress's usual tracks.
The song, called "UNBREAK my Mixtape," is made up of several samples from other songs including Carly Simon's "Why" and Karen Dalton’s “I Love You More Than Words Can Say,” combined with M.I.A.'s own original music. Slate writer Forrest Wickman suggests that the song is structured like a mixtape to a former flame, and the lyric, “Here’s a mixtape that I made, let’s take a break,” seems to support that claim.
"Matangi" is set for release in October.
