MIA's new album is influenced by Animal Collective and US rapper Gucci Mane, according to producer Diplo.
Diplo told Pedestrian.tv that he is one of a number of producers working on the album. He added that, along with Major Lazer partner Switch, he is set to finish off producing the album, having worked on four tracks so far.
"[I've] been in the studio with MIA working on her new record," Diplo explained. "It's like Gucci Mane meets Animal Collective. I think there are a couple of people [producing] but we're going to finish it off, me and Switch. We've done like four tracks already."
The new album will be the follow-up to MIA's 2007 album 'Kala'.
Diplo added that he is set to launch a Major Lazer cartoon series on Adult Swim.
