MIA has unveiled a new track from forthcoming album 'Matangi'.

'Unbreak My Mixtape' samples the acoustic guitar and vocal from Blur's 'Tender', alongside samples including Carly Simon's 'Why'. Scroll down to listen.

Meanwhile, a tweet sent by the singer seems to suggest that the documentary film about her is back on, following director Steve Loveridge quitting the project saying he "Would rather die than work on this." MIA's tweet, posted yesterday (August 21), said: "doc started back up today". The film is set to feature appearances from Kayne West, Spike Jonze, XL's Richard Russell, Switch and Interscope's Jimmy Iovine.

MIA's new album, 'Matangi', is due to be released on November 4. The release date was fixed after the singer took to Twitter to complain about her label, Interscope, holding things up. "If Interscope takes longer I can always leak this next week and make a new one by the time they are ready," she wrote on August 8.
