Perhaps you haven’t noticed, but with new albums on the way from Arcade Fire (likely), LCD Soundsystem (def.), Spoon (yup), Leonard Cohen (?), and M.I.A. next year, it’s shaping up to be an epic ‘10. The anticipation for M.I.A.’s upcoming third LP is particularly high, as it will have been three years since her last album and the post-Pineapple Express explosion of “Paper Planes” (among other feats) has brought her into another realm of notoriety.
Pedstrian.tv got Diplo, a producer on both of M.I.A.’s previous albums, on the phone recently and we have our first quote about what Ms. Arulpragasam has in store:
“Been in the studio with M.I.A. working on her new record,” Diplo told Pedestrian. “It’s like Gucci Mane meets Animal Collective. I think there are a couple of people [producing] but we’re going to finish it off, me and Switch. We’ve done like four tracks already.”
