After clashing antlers with her record label over the official release date of her upcoming studio album Matangi, M.I.A. has emerged the victor, popping her head up today to not only confirm the release date, but also share with us another gem to be featured on the record Unbreak My Mixtape.
We can now confirm that Matangi will hit shelves internationally within the month of November. It may seem like somewhat of a minor detail but M.I.A. was pushed to her wits’ end as she waited for Interscope to officially hand down a date. The musician took to Twitter where she threatened to leak the album and it appears the label execs heard loud and clear.
Since then, Unbreak My Mixtape has made its way online, giving us even more insight into this embattled album. The track follows on from her previous single Bring The Noize and sees constantly buzzworthy songstress tip her hat to the work of Blur by sampling the Brit pop classic Tender.
