Diplo's Major Lazer project has trailed the release of new album, 'Free The Universe', via an animated video.

Scroll down to watch the 50 second long clip, which states at the end that the new Major Lazer album will be released in February of next year.

Diplo's new album follows the 2009 debut 'Guns Don't Kill People... Lazers Do' and 2010 EP, 'Lazers Never Die', which featured guest appearances from Azealia Banks and MIA.

After the release of the first album, Diplo told Interview that he was recording in Jamaica with Vampire Weekend, Lykke Li, Santigold and more for the next LP.

He added: "Then we have some classic fellas like Lee Perry and Junior Murvin. It's like reggae is the vehicle, but we really live in this Major Lazer post-apocalypse world where all these artists don't seem strange together."

Snoop Lion, aka the new reggae incarnation of Snoop Dogg, recently debuted a new track titled 'Here Comes The King', which was produced by Major Lazer.
