For all our mixed enthusiasm for M.I.A.
, we've got to admit -- "Bad Girls" is a pretty boss song. Today in an exchange via Twitter with some fans, Maya revealed her next album Matangi
will be released by December of this year, along with an autobiographical book, documentary, and some sort of art exhibition. We've got a snippet of a new song that might be called "Come Walk With Me," and when combined with "Bad Girls," it's some seriously optimistic noise for the potential quality of this collection.
M.I.A. also reported that this album will be like "paul simon on acid," featuring "no collabs" and producers "that don't act like fame whore coloniser," which may be a veiled criticism to a notable knob twister, we can never be sure!*
That's the supposed track list up in the photo, although M.I.A. has said that "Bad Girls" will appear on the album, and it's absent above.
*pretty sure it's Diplo. I hope it's Diplo.
