British-Sri Lankan rapper, producer, and activist M.I.A. has released a new single titled ‘CTRL.’ In a message delivered on social media channels, M.I.A. told fans “CTRL! A SONG FOR 2020… This is not a song from M.I.A’s upcoming highly anticipated IIIIIIth LP. It was made for the HERE + NOW, TODAY.”

Accompanying the new track, M.I.A. made supportive messages for WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange. Assange is currently fighting extradition to the United States to face charges related to exposing classified U.S. info.  Assange appeared in a London court on Tuesday for an extradition hearing. Lyrics to the tune intimate M.I.A.’s frustration with Assange’s potential extradition and the state of affairs in the world.

“Rendez-vouz in Greece

They wanna get a piece

Modern Day Tolstoy

I give them War & Peace

Une, deux, trois

Quatre, cinq, six

Why you got to fuck with me

Just to be a bitch?”

M.I.A. released her first track in 3 years titled “OHMNI 202091.”
