With word of M.I.A. working on a new album a track featuring her has hit the web. The track, titled "Rock Off Shake Off" comes from Rye Rye who you may remember from a few years ago when she did exactly the same as she's doing here: Appearing from the silence with an M.I.A. track. Not that we're complaining mind you. The track is a big beat that had me bopping along within minutes. It's set to appear on her forthcoming debut, Go! Pop! Bang! which, surprisingly enough, is being released on M.I.A.'s N.E.E.T. Record Label.
