M.I.A. Drops New Song, ‘Gold’

By Philip Cosores

M.I.A. has been relatively quiet, at least in terms of controversy, since the release of Matangi last year.

Still, she has seemed to be perpetually on tour behind the strong set and today gets back to her roots with a new song.

M.I.A. made her name on mixtape releases, and has dropped a new song via The Partysquad’s Summermix 2014. The song, “Gold”, fits the mix’s title perfectly -fun, warm, current- and would only be better served if there were an Olympics for which it could be the theme song.

No word on what M.I.A. plans to do next, but this more low-key, let-the-music-do-the-talking approach is refreshing, and might be the ticket from a strong second act in her career.
