Fresh: M.i.a – ‘Matangi Mix For Kenzo’
Serving as a prequel for her forthcoming fourth studio album, Sri Lankan born, homegrown talent M.I.A teams up with fashion house Kenzo for an eight and a half minute, tribal infused offering entitled ‘Matangi’ mix. Building up over the course of the offering, the track includes tribal rhythms, heavy drums and Hindi chants, before M.I.A’s voice erupts somewhere near the five minute mark…
The track was designed to be used by Kenzo during the Fall/Winter 2013 collection at its Paris Fashion show and has now been released as a free stream.
The offering is reportedly a precursor to her forthcoming album of the same name, of which she recorded seven “incredible records,” with producer Hit-Boy.
Speaking on their collaboration, the ‘N***a’s in Paris’ producer said: “She’s really creative. She’s doing exactly what comes to her. That’s why we were able to crank out that many songs.”
Check out the track below.
