LISTEN: M.I.A tackles environmental impact of fashion with new single "Rewear It"

The comes part of H&M's upcoming Recycle Week campaign

English rapper Mathangi ‘Maya’ Arulpragasam - aka M.I.A. - is well known for the heavy political angles to her music.

Today she released the music video and full length audio to her latest song "Rewear It", which is front-and-centre for the H&M's  World Recycle Week (April 18-24), an initiative instigated by the Swedish retailer with the aim of collecting 1,000 tonnes of unwanted clothes to recycle.

M.I.A. told Vogue Magazine: “If all [H&M] do is go and inspire another high-street brand to get in on caring and being conscious, or if H&M gets criticized for any of their factory processes, these are all good things. [...] I’m definitely the person who puts water in the shampoo bottle at the end.”

As with her most recent single - last month's "Borders" which tackled the emigration crisis in Europe - it's still unclear if this single will be added to the tracklist for M.I.A's upcoming fifth album Matahdatah.
