M.I.A has revealed that she'll be dropping a 12-minute-long visual mixtape, featuring footage that will apparently piece together "a journey around the planet." Maybe her trip to Mount Everest that one time was done as part of it.

It may also have something to do with the recent news that M.I.A was blocked from releasing a video over fears from her label of cultural appropriation.

She posted the news up on Instagram last night – read it yourself below. And also, below that, check out a track she's featuring on at the moment, 'The New Interational Sound (Part II.)', by GENER8ION, set for release on 15th June via Bromance Records.

It's real ! here's my press release you know that same time as my label .
