Dying for your art...
MIA recently told NME that producer Dave "Switch" Taylor almost died while making her new album Matangi. Switch was one of several producers on the album, including Surkin, Doc McKinney, Danja and Hit-Boy.
She said: "He fell off a cliff and nearly died when he came into the studio. There was a 100ft cliff and [Switch] tried to do a dive into the sea but he slipped before he jumped and he fell. He was unconscious and all his ribs were broken and he had to go to hospital. Then when he came out we made 'Come Walk With Me'."
The album will be released on November 4. Here's a track list:
'Only 1 U'
'Come Walk With Me'
'Sexodus' (feat. The Weeknd)
'Double Bubble Trouble'
'Bring The Noize'
'Know It Ain't Right'
