With her long-awaited album Matangi out now, M.I.A. stopped by Late Night with Jimmy Fallon on Thursday night to promote the new record. Sitting down with the talkshow host-comedian, the controversial artist recalls a funny (and embarrassing) encounter with The Roots in Japan, and Interscope Records not providing her with a copy of the album. Hitting the in-studio stage, M.I.A. performed with a band for the first-time ever in North America, closing the night with her album cut “Come Walk With Me.”

Available now on iTunes, M.I.A.’s promo run continues with a 5-city tour beginning Friday at New York City’s Terminal 5. Check full tour dates and venues below.
