Here's a preview of another track from M.I.A.'s new album Matangi, "Y.A.L.A." produced by Major Lazer collaborators Partysquad. The acronym stands for "you always live again." On the full album version, M.I.A.explains the difference between the Y.O.L.O. and Y.A.L.A. world-views on a spoken outro:

Y.O.L.O.? I don't eve know anymore, what that eve mean tho
If you only live once why we keep doing the same shit?
Back home where I come from we keep being born again and again and again
Thats why they invented karma
