M.I.A. will release her follow up to 2005’s much praised Arular later this month. The album is called Kala, named after her mother (as Arular was the political code name for her Tamil-Militant father). Today’s side, Paper Plane, is a layed back anthem, and would be a great backyard bbq number but for very realistic sounding and totally unsettling gunshots in the chorus; you can make a game out of watching people hit the deck if your in the right kind of neighborhood. Another track, Jimmy, is also below. You can hear the rest of Kala via her myspace stream, the album will be released August 21st in the US.
