From MTV:

In a new interview, the outspoken singer says her label has pushed back the release date of her upcoming album Matangi, because it’s “too positive,” and has instructed her to “darken it up a bit.”

“I thought I’d finished it. I finished it and then I handed the record in, like, a couple of months ago,” M.I.A. said. “At the moment, I’ve been told it’s too positive. So we’re having a bit of an issue at the label … It’s like ‘We just built you up as the public enemy number 1, and now you’re coming out with all this positive stuff.”

Matangi — a reference to M.I.A.’s birth name, Mathangi, and a Hindu goddess of wisdom — was reportedly set to be released late last year, but now will hit stores in April … though, even that date is subject to change, because M.I.A. said she’s still trying to figure out what Interscope wants from her.
