Album News: M.I.A Releases Album Tracklisting; Hijacks Pitchfork!
Having just released an ultraviolent NSFW video which falls somewhere between Bertolt Brecht and Eli Roth, the U.K’s resident musical-dissident/all-round-icon, M.I.A, has gone ahead and leaked a tracklisting for her still yet-to-be-titled third album, rumoured to be out June on XL Recordings.
Hijacking the Twitter account of influential music webzine Pitchfork earlier this morning, M.I.A posted a series of semi-decipherable statements under the #miap4k hashtag. The one everybody understood, however, was the statement “MIA TRACKLIST FOR LP COMING JUNE ” YET UNTITLED OPEN TO SUGGESTION” followed by a link to a revealing screenshot of her iTunes.
The tentative tracklist – “open to suggestion”, in her own words – seems currently to be ordered as follows. However, knowing M.I.A, this might change a million times before the highly anticipated album hits shelves (which is rumoured to be this June)!
