  • This loopy, dream-like track conjures images of an orbiting M.I.A., happily unplugged from Earth and all the news from back home.
  • M.I.A told MTV News that this track contains one of her favorite moments on MAYA.

"It's not controlled, and because we recorded it at the same time as me singing, it just is as it is."
