M.I.A. Churns Out The Pop Hooks In Her Latest ‘Matangi’ Single, ‘Come Walk With Me’

Listen to M.I.A.'s "Come Walk With Me."

Walk with M.I.A.? Anytime, bb!

We’ve been missing M.I.A. like it’s our literal day job (oh, wait, it is!). After a series of painful delays, the singer has officially locked down a release date for the long-awaited Matangi, and to celebrate, she’s released “Come Walk With Me,” a new track off her forthcoming release, out Nov. 5.

(P.S. We assuming she’s “celebrating,” ’cause that’s precisely what we would do if we were about to release a game-changing body of work. Especially if we hadn’t released one since 2010. THREE YEARS EQUALS A DECADE IN THE MUSIC WORLD.)

Listen to M.I.A.’s “Come Walk With Me” after the jump.

Following the album’s lead single, “Bring The Noize,” and the Toni Braxton-inspired “Unbreak My Mixtape,” “Come Walk With Me” is rooted heavily in pop. M.I.A. jumps right in at the forefront to sing over a simple, synth-adorned track: “There’s a thousand ways to meet you now/ There’s a thousand ways to track you down/ Whatever you said and done/ There’s a thousand ways to make it count.”

Yeah, “Come Walk With Me” is definitely one of the more radio-friendly tracks we’ve heard off Matangi… Now, if only they’d hurry and just release the damn thing! It’s like, we’re waiting patiently, Mr. Record Label man. WE ARE WAITING.
