Everybody, stop what you’re doing and listen very carefully: your favorite Sri Lankan, Mathangi Arulpragasam, is apparently recording with Sonny Moore.
Okay, you can celebrate now.
Her caption reads, simply, “??? ? on MATAHDATAH”. For those of you out there that don’t speak emoji, her message translates literally to “Skrillex = fire on my new album.”
This can mean only one thing: Skrillex will take part in producing some (or hopefully, all) of Maya’s forthcoming album, Matahdatah. Working with the Bass God could be just what M.I.A. needs, seeing as how his brand of brutal bass drops would blend oh-so nicely with her politically charged, often violent imagery.
No word yet on when Matahdatah, or any of its singles are set to drop, but you can bet IHEARTCOMIX will have you covered when they do, so keep it locked. Until then, check out a short sneak peek of one of the album’s forthcoming songs, “Matahdatah Scroll 01 Broader Than A Border,” via Apple Music.
