New Album by M.I.A.: /\/\ /\ Y /\

M.I.A.’s hotly anticipated third full-length /\/\ /\ Y /\ has finally arrived, following the internationally critically acclaimed Arular (2005) and Kala (2007). Like its predecessors, /\/\ /\ Y /\ deftly mixes politics, social consciousness, and inimitable genre blending. As much a political statement as a musical one, the new album takes a scathing look at our ever-increasing dependence on the digital world. Producers on the album include Rusko, Blaqstarr, Switch, Diplo, John Hill, Derek Miller, Sugu, and Maya herself. You can check her out live on July 24th at Hard Fest in NYC on South Island Field, Governor’s Island.
