M.I.A. album delayed for being 'too positive'
In an interview with Australian website Gold Coast, the "Bad Girls" star said execs at Interscope Records would prefer that the album, entitled Matangi, veer into darker territory.
"It's due in April, which is the Tamil new year - April 15 - and I'm still working on it," she explained. "I thought I'd finished it. I finished it and then I handed the record in, like a couple of months ago. At the moment, I've been told it's too positive. So we're having a bit of an issue at the label.
"They're like, 'You need to darken it up a bit.' I don't know what it is but as soon as I work that out," she added. "I'm taking my time to decide what they mean. It's an interesting one for me. It's like, 'We just built you up as the public enemy no. 1, and now you're coming out with all this positive stuff."
Asked why she's agreed to rework the record, M.I.A. responded: "Well, that's the point of being positive."
