MIA drops new single ‘Go Off’, says new album ‘AIM’ will be her last

MIA’s forthcoming album, AIM, is likely to be her last. The musician made the announcement on BBC Radio 1 while debuting her new song, Go Off, a collaboration with Skrillex and Blaqstarr.


Talking about AIM, which will be her fifth studio album, she said: “It’s my last record so I wanted it to be happy. There’s no complains on it. [It’s] another side to me completely. I don’t know if people know [about] that.” When pushed on whether it really would be her last album, she replied: “Yeah, I think so. I wanna go and do some other stuff and take some time out.”

The rapper and producer didn’t shut the door on future music projects entirely, adding: “I’m sure I’ll put music out and make music, but as an album, this just came together after [November 2015 single] Borders and it just seemed like it wrote itself very quickly. I had to just go with it.”

The “Go Off” production meanwhile is instantly infectious, cut through with clattering drums and a melange of quintessentially strange Skrillex synth sounds. Go Off will be the first official single from AIM, which is due for release on 9 September.
