M.I.A. Follows Up 'Bring The Noize' With Another New Song [Listen]

UK rapper M.I.A. has a new album - titled Matangi - coming out soon, we hope, after pushing back the release date time after time. But judging by the rate at which we've been getting new material from her, with what seems to be the second snippet from the album emerging online this week (thanks to London-based Internet radio station NTS), in the shape of a track called 'Only 1 U.'

'Only 1 U' might appear on the rapper's next album

The track - the first thing we've heard since the rapper released 'Bring The Noize' last month - was leaked online by NTS who later uploaded the full radio show featuring the track on to their SoundCloud page after airing it on the show. The track appears at around the 2-minute mark. The station had little to say about the track, only that it was by M.I.A. and it is called 'Only 1 U.'

So, no word on whether it will appear on the long-awaited Matangi, which was supposed to be released in January this year but has been held back a number of times. There has still been no indication from M.I.A. or any of her team as to when the album will actually be out, but expect it to arrive at some point in 2013 (but don't hold your breath).

Whilst we're not 100% sure whether the album will end up on the album or whether it was left on the cutting room floor, but the song does sound distinctively similar to the kind of sounds we heard on her Matangi Mix she made for the Kenzo show at Paris Fashion Week this year.
