Major Lazer have announced a world tour in support of new album 'Free The Universe'.
The Diplo-led project will be joined on selected US dates by rapper Angel Haze. Canadian electro-pop group Dragonette and DJ/producer Lunice will also make appearances on the tour, but the UK support act has yet to be announced.

Major Lazer's new album 'Free The Universe' will be released shortly before the tour begins on February 18. As revealed last month (December 2012), the album will feature collaborations with a wide variety of guest artists, including Santigold, Shaggy and Danielle Haim from Haim.
