M.I.A. dropped her long-teased project “Matahdatah Scroll 01 Broader Than a Border,” a six-minute video for her Matangi track “Warriors” and a new song called “Swords,” exclusively through Apple Music on Monday (July 13).
The video features dancers in India and West Africa, as well as M.I.A. watching said dancers. It’s a colorful dive into two under-appreciated cultures, backed by M.I.A. putting her own spin on sounds from all over the globe.
Not included in the video is “Platforms,” the demo that the artist leaked earlier this year. Her Instagram, though, suggests that more vivid visuals for that song are on the way.
