M.I.A., 27

The news that Amy Winehouse died yesterday comes as a shock to all. Whether the shock was due to a loss of such a talent at a young age, or because she lasted longer than people thought, well, that’s for you to decide.  I personally don’t take stock in the celebrity death pool game, but somehow finds it not so ironic that Ms. Winehouse officially became a member of the Forever 27 club, joining Kurt, Janis, Jimi et al.

M.I.A. took to twitter and Soundcloud to mark the passing, and shares with us 27, a track she dedicates “to all my friends that died at 27.” Just thought I’d share it here with all of you, too.

Thanks, Maya. And RIP, Amy.
