Earlier this week, M.I.A. teased something mysterious and has since released an announcement about her future plans. While it will not be an album, like many expected, but a Patreon account that promises to release short films, documentary footage, art, live recordings, and Q&As.
“I’ve tried all the other platforms and it’s like: this one is too mean and hateful, this one is too fake and self-obsessed, and this one just sells all your data to Cambridge Analytica…” M.I.A. told Rolling Stone. “I want to get back to using the internet in a positive way; I don’t want to be an influencer. I want to be a truth dispenser.”
Patreons can subscribe at two tiers, the Arular for $5 and the Kala for $10.
