MIA and Eminem release new albums today (November 4).

'Matangi' is MIA's fourth album and her first since 'MAYA' in 2010. Originally scheduled for release in late 2012, the album has been delayed with MIA claiming that the album was "too positive" for her record label Interscope. In a recent NME interview, MIA said she had been determined that the album wouldn't jump on the dubstep bandwagon. "In the last two years it's been cool to do dark shit," she said. "Everyone's been slowing your shit down and making you slur. That's not 'Matangi'."

Meanwhile, Eminem releases 'The Marshall Mathers LP 2'. The album is the US rapper's seventh effort and includes the singles 'Berzerk' and 'The Monster', featuring Rihanna. 'The Monster' went straight to Number One in the Official UK Single Chart yesterday (November 3).

Also out today are new albums by Tinie Tempah, Avril Lavigne, Chase & Status, Connan Mockasin, Cut Copy, Icona Pop, James Arthur, Kiran Leonard, Los Campesinos!, Midlake, Oh Land, Papa, Swearin', The Wanted and Young Knives. The deluxe edition of David Bowie's 'The Next Day', featuring new songs and the James Murphy remix of 'Love Is Lost' is also available from today.
