M.I.A. has wasted no time in following up last year’s pretty disappointing ‘/\/\ /\ Y /\’ LP, with her forth album coming this summer, courtesy of a new album deal with Mercury.

The full length is as yet untitled, but on Tuesday [January 31st] ‘Bad Girl’, the first single from the record, will be released, accompanied by a video directed by Romain Gavras.

Gravas and M.I.A. have worked together before, on the highly controversial (and quite brilliant) ‘Born Free’ video, and if that promo is a taste of what’s to come, expect YouTube to throw another fit next week.

Before the video is plastered everywhere, though, it’ll be first streamed over at Pitchfork on Monday, 7.30pm UK time. ‘Bad Girl’ will also be played by Zane Lowe on Radio 1 that night, and M.I.A. will join the DJ for a chat via the magic of telephone.
