In time for the New Year, M.I.A. has released a very loud, 18-track mixtape to crown the year.

“Vicki Leekx,” M.I.A.’s new handle, seems to be inspired by WikiLeaks, the Julian Assange-founded website that has sent news networks and talking heads into a tizzy this past month. She’s posted about the site on her Twitter previously.

Well, this is no leak: it’s sanctioned by the artist and posted for free download at the cost of an alpaca your email.

Diplo and Switch (which, under other auspices, would be known together as Major Lazer), plus “MAYA” collaborator Blaqstarr, Danja, Munchi, Rusko, brother Sugu Arulpragasm and So Japan contributed.

Here is the tracklist for “Vicki Leekx”:
