CSS have explained the meaning behind the title of their new album 'Donkey'.

The group revealed that the name of their second record refers to themselves and how they were forced to tour by their old management.

Speaking to the Observer, multi-instrumentalist Adriano Cintra explained: "It's a Brazilian expression… like 'you idiot'. Like, 'we got new management; we're not donkeys any more'."

The group have appointed new managers after the punishing tour schedule implemented by their previous team.

CSS also jokingly suggested titles for their next record, with Ana Rezende saying: "The next record we'll call it 'Horses'!"

Carolina Parra and Luiza Sa then joked that 'Tigers' and 'My Little Pony' could be possible future titles.

'Donkey' is released on July 21.
