After promising something new less than an hour ago, M.I.A. is back with a new song and video "POC THAT STILL A RYDA." It's a stampede across the sand of horseback riders and white vehicles, shot on shaky handheld cameras. Sonically, it's the rawest thing from M.I.A. in a while, who hits a based-style flow and references her "Fly Pirates" shirt, her own songs including "Bamboo Banga" and "Sunshowers," and a certain current civil rights movement: "I'm here for every color, including Black Lives Matter," she sings.
