M. I.A. has confirmed that her upcoming album, "Mata," will be released in September, no matter what. She has partially explained the delay in its release by waiting for guest verses from other artists.

Late last year, she revealed her sixth album’s title in a video on Instagram where she parodied Facebook, announcing that their company would now be called Meta. “To reflect where I am and what we want to build, I’m proud to announce, starting today, my LP is now 'Mata'."
