MIA offered fans a preview of her new album with the release of an eight-minute long mix created for fashion house Kenzo.

Though the mix, which you can stream below, was designed to be used by Kenzo during the Fall/Winter 2013 collection at its Paris Fashion Week show fans will be able to use the mix as a preview of MIA's forthcoming album, also titled 'Matangi'. 'Matangi' is MIA's birth name and will be her fourth studio album, following the release of 'Maya' in 2010. A one-off single 'Bad Girls' was released in 2012.

It was previously revealed that MIA is working with Hit-Boy, the producer behind Kanye West and Jay-Z's 'Niggas In Paris' on her next record. "I just did seven songs on her new album. We just locked in the studio and just vibed and we did seven incredible records," the producer said while sharing a song called 'Doobie' the pair had made together.

MIA was due to release her fourth album 'Matangi' in late 2012. However, she recently revealed that record label Interscope were not quite convinced by her work because it was too positive. "It's due in April, which is the Tamil new year – April 15 – and I'm still working on it," she said.
