MIA has described her forthcoming new album as sounding like Paul Simon 'on acid'.

The singer made the comment on Twitter, after telling fans she would answer 10 questions about the follow-up to 2010's 'Maya'. She also explained that the record would be released in December, alongside a book, documentary and art exhibition. Some of the tweets have subsequently been deleted.

When asked how many tracks would feature on the new album, she said: "its still in the making -could be 5 it could be 15 depends on what sounds good in my bros CAR." She added that there would be no collaborations on the record and of the LP's unknown producers she said it will be worked on with "ones that dont act like fame whore coloniser."

She went on to Tweet one of her favourite lyrics on the record:



In April, MIA released 'Come Walk With Me', following the instrumental soundtrack she wrote for Wikileaks founder Julian Assange's TV show The World Tomorrow.
