M.I.A. releases 'Bird Song' off new album
She dropped the Blaqstarr-produced version
M.I.A. released another track from her forthcoming album AIM early Thursday morning. Called “Bird Song,” the track is pegged as the Blaqstarr version, but she has said that a Diplo-produced version of the same tune is also coming out this week.
“Bird Song” is the third song she’s shared from the collection, out Sept. 9, and follows “Go Off” and “Borders.” AIM also features, “Freedun,” a collaboration with Zayn Malik.
“I really wanted to write a song for Zayn…,” she told EW. “We had a couple people in common. And that’s how it came about. I didn’t really approach him for my own record until later on. First, I thought I wanted to try writing a song for him.”
