This is MIA’s world and we are just living in it – this has been quite clear from the very start, now that she has been making music for the last 15 years. WE have witnessed the many artistic projects and music she has blessed us with.
But recently in a true indie artist spirit she made a Patreon account which is available for fans to subscribe to for as little as $5 and $10 per month, on a tier basis. The subscribers have access to “short films, clips and video diaries,” unreleased footage from her MATANGI/MAYA/M.I.A documentary, live streams, Q&As and new music, which is what she has now delivered!
To mark the 15th anniversary of her debut album “Arular”, she released a new song on her Patreon called ‘OHMNI20209’ just for her subscribers. “Free music to get you the fuck up outta bed! Here’s the beginning,” M.I.A. tweeted Sunday, announcing the song’s arrival.
“I’m doing a Patreon, because I make so much stuff and record so many things that aren’t music and don’t fit on other platforms,” M.I.A. wrote when she started using the platform to truly reach all her fans. “I’m still making music, putting out the 6th album which is nearly finished, on a normal label, same as the others.”
We are all here for the artists who are an open book and beckon us in with beautiful, moving revolutionary music.
