M.I.A. Shares Percussion-Heavy Alternate Version of “AMP (All My People)”

attends the Stella McCartney Menswear launch and Women's Spring 2017 collection presentation at Abbey Road Studios on November 10, 2016 in London, England.

Early on Sunday, M.I.A. shared an alternate version of “AMP (All My People),” a song from her most recent album A.I.M. “AMP drums” isn’t a drastic departure from the original, but it strips out some the album’s EDM-influenced production in favor of more prominent rhythms, sometimes leaving M.I.A.’s vocals over drums alone. The alternate mix is also about 30 seconds longer.

M.I.A. co-produced “AMP drums” with frequent collaborator Switch and English DJ Riton. Hear the new version and compare to the album cut below.
