M.I.A.'s New Album Delayed For Being Too Positive

Posted by: Keagan Ilvonen (01/07/13)
M.I.A.'s new album, Matangi has been postponed until April due to "excess positivity."
From The InterviewIt's due in April, which is the Tamil new year-- April 15-- and I'm still working on it. I thought I'd finished it. I finished it and then I handed the record in, like a couple of months ago. 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 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. It's like, 'We just built you up as the public enemy no. 1, and now you're coming out with all this positive stuff.

I really doubt that she would ever change anything or release something she didn't believe in just to please them. She said she's trying to figure out what they even mean
