M.I.A.'s Album Delayed Since It Wasn't Dark Enough

Controversial rapper and cultural lightning rod M.I.A. will release her new album Matangi on April 15.
Her fourth album was originally due out in December, but it has been pushed back.
Never one to mince words, she revealed that her label made her push the album, since it wasn't satisfied with what she had turned in, calling it "too positive" for someone who is known as a big-mouthed bad girl. So they sent her back to the studio to work on it some more.
She told Goldcoast.com, "I thought I'd finished it. I finished it and then I handed the record in, like a couple of months ago. They're like 'You need to like darken it up a bit.' I don't know what it is but as soon as I work that out.'"
Darken it up a bit? Hmmm. Bring on the negativity and the darkness.
Are you looking forward to M.I.A.'s Matangi?
