MIA has unveiled a one-minute, 26 second long snippet of a new song entitled 'YALA'.

Click below to listen to the excerpt of the track, which stands for 'You Always Live Again', a response to the YOLO - 'You Only Live Once' - slogan. The song comes from her long-awaited new album 'Matangi'. The new LP is due for release on November 5, and will also feature the tracks 'Bad Girls' and 'Come Walk With Me'.



MIA recently revealed that she has a new fashion project with Versace. According to Women's Wear Daily (WWD), the singer spoke about the project at the Balenciaga show at Paris Fashion Week. Although she would not reveal any details, WWD understands that the project is for Donatella Versace's diffusion line Versus, which will invite other designers and artists to interpret the fashion brand.

Last month, the singer launched a scathing attack on the NFL, in response to their decision to sue her for $1.5 million (£900,000) in a legal dispute that has been underway the past 18 months, following her 2012 half-time performance at the Super Bowl XLVI.

At the half-time show, during which the singer performed alongside Madonna and Nicki Minaj, MIA was seen to give the camera the middle finger midway through 'Give Me All Your Luvin' while mouthing "I don't give a shit". She has now uploaded a video during which she sports an Oakland Raiders top and accuses the NFL of a "massive display of corporation dick-shaking", arguing that there were far more offensive images on show during the performance than that of her middle finger.
