Earlier this week, she tweeted that it was hard for her to put her feelings about the world into bars.In July, M.I.A. released an audiovisual project called Matahdatah Scroll 01 Broader Than a Border, a six-minute clip that featured her songs "Warriors" and "Swords." She also unleashed her video for "The New International Sound Pt. II," which featured 36,000 Chinese children fighters.
