Listen: M.I.A.'s Stripped-Down New Track, "Baby"

Any day that brings new M.I.A. is a good day in our book. Details about the new track "Baby" are limited, but it's being reported that the song's an unreleased single and/or demo produced by hitmaker William Orbit (Madonna, Beck). 

M.I.A. sounds positively sweet over a loud, stripped-down electro beat. "Baby, it's hard to find a dude that can get the better out of me / And baby, I like your stee / I think you got exactly what I need," she chants. Too late to be a song of the summer? We think not.

M.I.A. is currently prepping for the release of her fourth studio album, Matangi, due out later this year. Let us know what you think about "Baby" in the comments.
