Sure, in clubs and cars and anywhere Best New Music is found, you've been shaking it to M.I.A.'s "Jimmy" for ages now. But unless you snagged a copy of the Japanese version of Kala-- the splendid album from whence it came-- on holiday in Kyoto, you probably haven't heard "What I Got". Tacked on the end of M.I.A.'s bangin' sophomore effort in the land of the rising sun, "What I Got", in true M.I.A. fashion, flips scripts from the Chili Peppers and Huey Lewis & the News into something all her own.

"What I Got" is the star of the new 7" single for "Jimmy", which drops October 1 in the U.K. via XL. It will also be available as a CD and 12"-- regrettably absent the blood sugar sex magik of "What I Got". Still, as befits a modern disco cut, the B-sides will feature "Jimmy" getting stripped of its vocals for an instrumental, and mixed anew by DJ Eli.

Oh, and M.I.A. will take what she's got on the road sporadically from now 'til the end of October.
