After M.I.A. threatened to leak it herself this morning, Interscope has given a release date to her fourth official album, Matangi. As Pitchfork reports, the album, which M.I.A. previously called “too positive” for the label’s taste, will be released November 5th, about 15 months after M.I.A. once hoped it would be.
