  • 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. "The bit where it breaks down and stuff, that's just done on an iPhone app, and we recorded it back into the computer and it's made up of all the glitches and stuff," M.I.A. said. "It's not controlled, and because we recorded it at the same time as me singing, it just is as it is."
