Maya Arulpragasam, AKA M.I.A has crept out of her 2014 music hiatus—following on from her 2013 album ‘Matangi’—by dropping a brand new banger overnight, ‘Can See Can Do’: a powerful track that won’t go amiss in soundtracking your International Women’s Day. Bad girls do it well, etc.
Originally announcing on twitter that she would be unleashing a single titled ‘All My People‘ today, M.I.A quickly backtracked and decided to instead release ‘Can See Can Do’, a track that throbs and inspires just as much as M.I.A’s classic, textbook offerings.
‘Can See Can Do’ was prefaced by M.I.A on twitter with this: “DEMOCRACY CONVERSATIONS ! TAMILS ARE STILL WAITING ! AND NO MY BEATS ARE NOT BETTER WITHOUT MY POLITICX.”
Listen below. In other news, if you add some wayward body oil and a smear of glitter in every imaginable bodily crevice, consider this an accurate portrait of post-Mardi Gras Sydney, today. Praying for you all.
