MIA releases ‘Beep’, reveals ‘Mata’ artwork

Forthcoming studio album coming soon

M.I.A. has shared “Beep” from her highly anticipated forthcoming album, Mata, coming soon via Island Records. The track follows “Popular” and “The One,” and sets the runway for what is set to be one of the most loved and talked about albums of 2022. More details to be revealed very soon.

The global trailblazer and visionary has also shared the cover art for Mata. “Take cover” she writes while sharing the animated artwork on social media.

Undoubtedly, one of the most important and potent multi-medium artists of this millennium, M.I.A’s career spans five studio albums, international performances, multiple sold-out world tours, GRAMMY and Academy Award recognition, while continuously pushing the boundaries of digital and ideological possibilities. M.I.A has never lost touch with her indelible punk spirit that inspired her glitching directorial debut; Elastica’s “Mad Dog” music video, to her self-directed tour visuals, graphics and NFT’s that continue to bend minds to this day. She has consistently paved the way in the music and digital art space and helped create a community of outcasts during the defining years of the internet, a spectrum of influence that is unrivaled by a recording artist.
