M.I.A. teased new material yesterday via Instagram, posting what looked like artwork for a single or an album along with the caption "TBA." Fans didn't have to wait long: "Borders" appeared on Spotify this morning. With chanting backing vocals and the sort of percussion that dominates modern mixtures of trap and electronic music, the new track fits easily in the contemporary musical landscape. M.I.A.'s delivery is pleasantly sing-song. Listen below, and read the singer's FADER interview.
