Friday is now twice as nice because MIA released a new track today called "Born Free."  The sound is a slight departure from her earlier albums as it loses the drum-machine, beat produced sound, and instead opts for a punk-rock, fuzzed out riff and reverbed vocals.  We love it!   M.I.A.- Born Free by FirstUp! Her much awaited album is coming out June 29th of this year.  This song will hold us over for a little while, but we'll be needing ... Read More
