Maternity leave, ovah. Nearly a year after her last high-profile national appearance—nine months pregnant and swaggering at the '09 Grammys with Jay-Z, Kanye, et al in this demure little number—agit-rock culture-jammer turned ubiquitous movie soundtracker M.I.A. has returned with a new track, posted via TwitVid. Oh, the technology!

Stream the clip, cryptically titled "THERES SPACE FOR OL DAT I SEE," below:

Kick-off sirens aside, it could very well be a lullaby for little Ikhyd, no? No Clash-samples-and-cash-registers "Paper Planes" banger steez, just a sort of hazy, spooky 2001 fever dream—"My lines are down you can't call me / as I float around in space all I see."

It's the first pin to drop from her upcoming third album, this summer's still-untitled, Blaqstarr-produced follow-up to Kala. Is it good to see M.I.A. missing in action no more?
