M.I.A. has shared new song "Goals." The track is produced by Portugese artist Branko, who worked on M.I.A.'s 2016 album AIM. A video for the track, comprised of GIFs made by photographer Jaime Martinez, can be seen above.

A description beneath the video on YouTube says "Goals" is "dedicated to my hardcore fans" who have given M.I.A. "a sliver of hope in humanity." The short message ends with a mention of "Reality Winnerz," a possible reference to the 25-year-old Air Force Veteran charged with mailing classified material to a news outlet.

The "Goals" video will be displayed as an art piece throughout Southbank Centre’s Royal Festival Hall public spaces during M.I.A.’s Meltdown festival. The festival begins on June 9 and will feature performances from Giggs, Princess Nokia, Young M.A., and more. M.I.A. will perform on the closing night of June 18.
