M.I.A.'s next studio album, Matahdatah, is well on its way, heralded by the yesterday's premiere of Matahdatah Scroll 01: "Broader Than A Border." The video, which dropped exclusively on Apple Music, features two tracks from Matahdatah, entitled "Swords" and "Warriors". This follows the visually stunning video for "The New International Sound Part II".
The video combines two tracks from Matahdatah and features street performances from Africa and India. This draws a stark contrast to "The New International Sound Part II" which was very complex and beautifully choreographed.
M.I.A. directed the video and has clearly taken as much creative control on this project as with previous ones.
