M.I.A. released an eight-minute mix of new material today as the soundtrack for the fashion house Kenzo's Fall/Winter 2013 collection at its Paris Fashion Week show. She also made the track available for streaming this morning on the website MatangiMixtape.comThe track shares a name with M.I.A.'s upcoming fourth album (the title references a Hindu goddess as well as M.I.A.'s birthname), and might give some hint of what to expect from Matangi. The new album is due sometime late this spring or summer. 

M.I.A., "Matangi Mix"

Song Stories

“Love Is the Answer”

Utopia | 1977

The message of the Beatles' "All You Need Is Love" proved to be a universal and long-lasting one, which Utopia revisited 10 years later on this ballad. "From a lyrical standpoint, it's part of a whole class of songs that I write, which are about filial love," Todd Rundgren explained. "I'm not a Christian, but it's called Christian love, the love that people are supposed to naturally feel because we are all of the same species. That may be mythical, but it's still a subject." Though "Love Is the Answer" wasn't a hit, a cover version two years later by England Dan & John Ford Coley peaked at Number Ten on the Billboard singles chart.
