The producer is also preparing a new Major Lazer album for release
Diplo has unveiled a remix of QT single ‘Hey QT’.
In November 2014, Diplo confirmed that he’s worked with Sophie, Madonna and Nicki Minaj on new music. He said: “Me and Sophie, we did a bunch of stuff together. I did a record that was literally Sophie and Madonna and Nicki Minaj… I just love collaborating. I mean, if I can make a good record with Madonna, Nicki Minaj and Sophie, that’s all I wanna do. All I want to do is things that haven’t been done before. I want to leave behind those weird things.”
Meanwhile, Diplo will release a new Major Lazer album later this year, which will feature Ellie Goulding, Ariana Grande, Travis Scott, Pusha-T and Gwen Stefani. Major Lazer and Ariana Grande previously worked together on ‘All My Love’, a track that featured on the Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1 soundtrack.
Major Lazer were recently announced as part of the line-up for this year’s Wireless Festival at London’s Finsbury Park in July. They join A$AP Rocky and headliner Drake on the Friday of the event.
Major Lazer previously teamed up with Vampire Weekend’s Ezra Koenig for the track ‘Vegan Vampire’, which will feature in their forthcoming cartoon series – also called Major Lazer – that is set to air on US TV network Fox this year.
