M.I.A. "Finally" Shares A Preview Of A New Song Off Her Upcoming Project

"I wake up every day and think I'm gonna leak it."

MIA // Apple Music

The elusive M.I.A. announced last week that her "last album" is complete and ready to share. Coming down to a matter of label politics and awaiting the finalizing mixing process, the rapper now reveals that the album will no longer be titled Matahdatah and that it could be coming sooner than planned.

"I would love to leak it," she said in a video clip. "I wake up every day and think I'm gonna leak it."

She elaborated by saying:

"If I carry on making music, then I would do that, but I also want to find an album where I can actually make my label work for me. Maybe I can't lie enough, which is why I can't be making a mainstream record. But my songs on this album are pretty non-offensive, and if they get offended by this, then I give up and I'm gonna go back to saying whatever the fuck I want wherever I want to, even on Periscope. I can put a beat on every day and just chat over it."
