M.I.A. is prepping her comeback to the music scene with her fourth album Matangi to arrive this spring. During her trip to Australia, Maya revealed that her new opus will have a slightly more uplifting tone from her previous releases – something her label Interscope is not fully in tune with:

“It’s due in April, which is the Tamil new year—April 15th—and I’m still working on it. At the moment, I’ve been told it’s too positive. So we’re having a bit of an issue at the label,” she said. “They’re like, ‘You need to like darken it up a bit.’ I don’t know what it is but as soon as I work that out. We just built you up as the public enemy No. 1 and now you’re coming out with all this positive stuff,”

We sure are interested in what this will sound like.
