M.I.A.: "Born Free" (NSFW Video)


That stream of “Born Free” from the new M.I.A. album didn’t last long when it was prematurely leaked last week. But it doesn’t matter, because now we’ve got something better—this short, nine-minute film featuring the track from director Romain Gavras, which is distinctly NSFW.

 

The Suicide-sampling song is said to be the first single from that as-yet untitled album, and is full of nudity, violence and aggression as police round up a group of red heads for an execution. It’s safe to say that the upcoming M.I.A. album isn’t likely to provide much inspiration for Lady Gaga.

My that's intense. I like the direction she's headed here, sonically.

"Ghost Rider" is great, too.

It's interesting, because that song has a rowdy but bleak vibe, and the video could just as easily have been something "disturbing" but actually rock and roll lifestyle affirming (like, people streetfighting or doing drugs, etc.). Instead, it satisfies the thirst for violence the song makes you feel while making you feel guilty for feeling it, and also making a totally separate political point (couldn't have anything to do with the recent slaughter of the Tamils, could it?).

When I hear the chorus I think she is saying "Borrr-ing". This is boring. I don't care about any politics.... This doesn't swing man...
