M.I.A.‘s Matangi track “Come Walk With Me” dropped in full today (September 3), and if you were turned off by the saccharine-sounding preview revealed last week, we urge you to give the full song a try. That snippet was taken from the song’s intro, which begins with M.I.A.’s nasally vocals over some cheery, if sparse, pop-rock — almost like a sanitized Santigold cut.
But, then! Things get crazy, and the seemingly straightforward, radio-ready track turns into a jittery dancehall workout, with clanging drums sharing space with chopped-up vocals and horns. Check it out below.
