M.I.A. is no longer MIA - watch the video for brand new ‘There’s Space For Ol’ Dat I See’

M.I.A. is gearing up for her big return this summer, and giving us a pretty nice taste of what's to come.  New track, 'There's Space For Ol' Dat I See' is essentially 'M.I.A. Sings the Songs of Tricky' and is accordingly brilliant.

The video, however, is pretty much just a screensaver but not one of the cool new ones, and in sum it ends up as "NYU Student Union in association with the Soho Art Installation Project Present: 'M.I.A. Sings The Songs of Tricky to Windows 97 (c) Starry Night."   You can almost smell the hipster swarm.
