M.I.A. Announces New Album

M.I.A. took to Periscope earlier this week to make some announcements. During the brief rant, she announced plans to release her next album in July, and it will contain 12 songs.

"I felt by the end of it all, you can make a record that's happy about surviving and not really constantly talk about the fight. At the end of the day, I feel like... it's probably better to remind people about survival and surviving than it is about the moment you go to battle. Because that's just a moment. After that, be happy fly pirates" -M.I.A.

M.I.A. also spoke about a Rihanna collaboration that didn't make the cut, also letting us know that she hasn't been able to work with many American producers due to U.S. banning her from entering the country. Watch the full session above.
