    M.I.A. got on Periscope yesterday and revealed that her new album would be coming out in "July. Summertime." She added, "It's got 12 songs. I had to take the Disney thing off. I put 'Galang' on it instead, I sampled myself. I wanted to say, 'Whatever, I can't get Lion King, I'm gonna use my own song! That way no one can stop it." At the end of the video, she plays a snippet of a new song, which she unveiled the lyrics to last month on her Instagram. Watch the entire video below.

    Talking about the album, M.I.A. said, "(I realized) you can make a record that's happy about surviving. And not constantly talk about fight. At the end of the day, I feel like—maybe this is totally gibberish to everyone—but it's probably better to remind people about survival than it is about the moment you go to battle. Because that's just a moment."

    Since dropping "Borders" last November, M.I.A. has been all over the map. She released "Rewear It" as part of H&M's World Recycle Week project. She worked on "Temple" with Baauer and G-Dragon, and even dished on Beyonce and Kanye. No exact release date has been announced for her upcoming album yet. There is also some question about her ability to perform in the U.S. because her Visa has been denied.
