Your tears don't shake my world like Britney Spears.

LISTEN: M.I.A.’s Newly Leaked “Baby” Produced By William Orbit

Apparently, pop provocateur M.I.A. has been in the studio with the legendary William Orbit, and a song from their session sneaked its way upon the Internet last night. Entitled “Baby”, it’s an unexpected, but not entirely surprising pairing, as Maya has worked with pop-friendly producers like Richard X and Timbaland before. Hear the icy, minimal track below, before it’s taken down!

UPDATE: M.I.A. has stated on her Twitter that this is an unfinished demo for Madonna and is not for her new LP.

In more baffling Orbit-related news, the pop maestro also uploaded a new track on his Soundcloud yesterday, the synth-laden “All Fired Up” (not a Saturdays cover, sadly), featuring none other than Tina Barrett – well, she of “S Club 7” fame! It’s a bit on the cheesy side, while I do like the fizzy electro production, her vocals left a lot to be desired. A quick search revealed the track actually floated about on Youtube since 2008, so will it be on Tina’s forthcoming solo album? Will she be the one to threaten an S Club 7 reunion? The plot thickens.

Also, he uploaded an instrumental version of the forgotten Nadine Coyle album track “Unbroken”. His instrumentals are always worth a listen for their intricate, pristine production, but really I’m just waiting for an instrumental of All Saints’ “Black Coffee” to be put up. I need that in my life.


In other news, the Madonna reject that Orbit gave away to Chris Brown, “Don’t Wake Me Up”, shot up to #2 last week on the UK Top 40. Blimey.

    So far 2012 has already been a great year for music. Some of my favourite artists have released new albums like Enter Shikari, Lana Del Rey, Linkin Park and this trend isn’t going to stop. M.I.A. will release her album this year as well and I’m still addicted to pretty much all of her other albums, so I expect great things! Enjoy her freshly leaked new track “Baby”!
