M.I.A. shares ‘MIA OLA’ and 'Foreign Friend'

Border-crossing giant is streaming now.

M.I.A. has unveiled ‘MIA OLA’ and ‘Foreign Friend’, two brand new tracks streaming below.

No word on whether these feature on a forthcoming album, but it’s her first original work since the controversy-stirring ‘Borders’.

Again, M.I.A.’s tackling the refugee crisis. There’s the fly lyric “hiding in my Toyota Corolla,” but it brings to light serious political issues with similar skill.

The tracks were released alongside the message: “TO ALL MY FLYPIRATES and DJS - THIS IS AN ANNOUNCEMENT !!!! LIVE FROM THE MEXICAN BORDER OLA !!!! MIA ON THE WAVES.”
