M.I.A.'s fourth album, Matangi, now has a release date of April 15. It has been delayed for quite some time due to differences with Interscope. She explained how they felt it was too positive, compared to her previous material, in an interview with Gold Coast.
"At the moment, I’ve been told it’s too positive. So we’re having a bit of an issue at the label. 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.’ I'm taking my time to decide what they mean. It's an interesting one for me."
