New M.I.A. Album Gets Title, Release Pushed Back


M.I.A.'s highly anticipated Kala follow-up finally has a title — /\ /\ /\ Y /\. And yes, you're right, that is the most annoying way to spell MAYA. Which is what I will refer it to from now on. M.I.A.'s NEET Blog did not only announce the title of the new album, but also brought news that the album has been pushed back from June 29 to July 13. Maybe those two extra weeks is what MAYA needs to find an identity. The album's promotional single "Born Free" was influenced majorly by M.I.A.'s newest signees Sleigh Bells and last year's Best PictureThe Hurt Locker. And the album's official first single, "XXXO" sounds like a track left off Robyn's Body Talk Pt. 1.
