Major Lazer recording album with Vampire Weekend, Lee Perry, Santigold, Lykke Li and more
Major Lazer are recording with the likes of Vampire Weekend, Lee Perry, Lykke Li, Santigold and more for their new album.

The duo, Diplo and Switch, are currently working on an LP in Jamaica and say the record will contain a mix of guest appearances from reggae and indie musicians.

Diplo told Interviewmagazine.com that they are halfway through the record now.

"I'd like to have it done by the end of the year and get it out for 2011," he explained. "It's a pretty random selection – top-form dancehall guests; Vybz Kartel, Bugle, Timberlee. Also, Vampire Weekend, Lykke Li and Santigold."

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."

Major Lazor recently played in Beijing concluding the Creators Project's series of global gigs.
