M.I.A. Releases New Song: “Born Free”

I was fine listening to the new Hole record through shitty laptop speakers earlier today, and even the new National record, actually, but this one’s just begging for the home stereo treatment: M.I.A. released “Born Free” (presumably a track from the still untitled album she’s set to release on June 29th) this morning, and it’s an uncharacteristically punk rock affair that channels The Slits and Kim Gordon, essentially managing to out-Vivian Girls the Vivian Girls. It’s also really, really making me want to listen to “Orange Rolls, Angel’s Spit.”
