With the upcoming launch of her extremely anticipated forthcoming album MATA — out October 14 — M.I.A. has shared ‘Beep,’ co-produced with Skrillex and Rick Rubin.
Her ethnic Sri Lankan affect comes by clear as day with punchy drums and people immediately recognizable synths and strings. It’s somewhat disappointing the music is just two minutes, however as streaming is changing into extra constrained by social media platforms like TikTok (although this doesn’t sound very similar to a TikTok music), we’re not significantly stunned.
So far as Skrillex is anxious, it’s clear he’s nonetheless engaged on music (that Fred once more.. collab continues to be coming), simply probably not his personal. Or, no less than, not that expeditiously. It’s been nearly three years since he first mentioned he was engaged on a number of albums, and he mentioned it once more simply this previous Might — although, that submit has now been deleted.
It’s nearly an inside joke at this level that we’re not going to get one other album from him. However the common consensus is that, even when we do, it gained’t be just like the Skrillex we as soon as knew.
‘Beep’ is out all over the place now.
