MIA has dropped a delightful video for a deep cut: the unreleased song “Reload,” which was recorded a year before the release of her groundbreaking debut, Arular.
The British rapper dropped the clip as a gift to fans who had checked out MATANGI / MAYA / MIA, Stephen Loveridge’s 2018 documentary that chronicled her artistic career and its attendant controversies.

The song, which features in the documentary, was written with Justine Frischmann of English alternative rock band Elastica. The video was shot in Frischmann’s basement in 2004, Pitchfork reports.
