    M.I.A. has teamed up with clothing brand H&M to bring awareness to World Recycle Week. World Recycle Week is an H&M initiative that asks shoppers to recycle unwanted clothes at H&M stores for store credit, and is set to take place April 18th-24th. According to Pitchfork, "On April 11, she'll release a "visual content piece" through H&M in which she highlights "the environmental impact of clothes going to landfills around the world," according to a press release." The article goes on to say, "M.I.A.'s contribution will feature a new song written for the H&M campaign around the theme of recycling, according to a representative."

    M.I.A.'s most recent new music came when she dropped "ADD bomb," which she actually recorded back in 2012. "ADD drop" begins with a skit about M.I.A.'s 2012 lawsuit. The artist was sued by the NFL after the performance. M.I.A.'s most recent new new music was released last November. The politically charged "Borders" and its accompanying music video received universal acclaim.

    There have been no announcements about when M.I.A.'s upcoming fifth record, Matahdatah, will be released. She is not set to play any live shows this summer. Hopefully, this new song along with last year's "Borders," and her lack of tour dates suggests that she is hard at work on the LP. M.I.A.'s last album, Matangi, was released in 2013.
