Track first to be taken from group's as-yet-untitled forthcoming album
Major Lazer have premiered a new song featuring DJ Snake and MØ.
Entitled ‘Lean On’, the track is the first to be taken from the forthcoming album from Major Lazer – an electronic music project created by DJ and producer Diplo. You can listen to it below.
It was recently reported that the new Major Lazer album will feature Ellie Goulding, Ariana Grande, Travis Scott, Pusha-T and Gwen Stefani. “The Madonna album’s out in March, I did a lot of her album,” Diplo said in a red carpet interview at the Grammys. “Then there’s Major Lazer, my project which I did with Ariana Grande, Ellie Goulding, Travis Scott, Pusha-T, Gwen Stefani. That comes out in April.”
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.
Last month, Diplo also teamed up with Skrillex to release the debut Jack Ü album in the middle of the artists’ joint 24-hour DJ set. The duo were taking part in a full day of DJing, when three hours into the set, Skrillex announced that an album the pair worked on together would be available to download. It arrived on iTunes promptly afterwards.
‘Skrillex And Diplo Present Jack Ü’ featured guests including Justin Bieber, 2 Chainz and AlunaGeorge as well as the previously heard ‘Jack Ü’ featuring Kiesza and Missy Elliott.
