Mishal is currently preparing for her album release. Her third, highly anticipated album ‘Bleed Out’ is due for release under Strictly Rhythm/Warner/Ill Friction Records in June 2011. It was produced by 2010/2011 grammy nominated Kenny Dope and features her singles, ‘It Ain’t Over’ and ‘Oh Lord’, which was licensed by Vanity Fair in their 2010 promotion of the Oscars.
