MIA to debut new single 'Bad Girls' next week
'Maya' singer will offer up the first taste of her fourth album next Monday
The track will be given its debut live on BBC Radio 1 at 7.30pm (GMT) on Monday (January 30) on Zane Lowe's show. It was recorded in Miami with producer Danja, who has also worked with the likes of Madonna and Nelly Furtado. The song's video will be released on February 3.
'Bad Girls' is the first track to be taken from the singer's as yet untitled fourth album, which is due for release later this year. It is MIA's first album for new label Mercury Records after she left XL Recordings at the completion of her contract.
MIA's fourth album, which is the follow-up to her 2010 record 'Maya', is rumoured to feature contributions from Swizz Beatz, Cataracs and Chris Brown.
The singer is also confirmed to appear on Madonna's forthcoming new single 'Gimme All Your Luvin'. She features alongside Nicki Minaj on the track, which is due for release on February 5.
