Diplo's dancehall project are set to release a new EP in February
Pharrell has previewed his upcoming Major Lazer collaboration live onstage during the Holy Ship! festival cruise.
Producer Diplo recently announced that Major Lazer, his project with Jillionaire and Walshy Fire, would release a new EP in February. Pharrell, Sean Paul, RDX, Machel Montano, and Elephant Man are all set to feature on the release.
Pharrell has now previewed 90 seconds of what is thought to be his track on the EP during the Holy Ship! electronic and dance music cruise, after helicoptering on the ship, reports Consequence of Sound. Click above to watch Pharrell performing a snippet from the as-yet-untitled track, which segues into ‘Blurred Lines’, his Robin Thicke assisted hit from last year.
Pharrell Williams, who topped the Official UK Singles Chart with his song ‘Happy’, will this year release his first solo album in eight years. Williams has signed to Columbia Records for the release, which will follow his 2006 LP ‘In My Mind’. The album will likely feature ‘Happy’, for which he recently created the world’s first 24 hour-long music video.
The video features Williams alongside a large cast – including cameos from Odd Future, Magic Johnson, Steve Carell and Jimmy Kimmel – dancing through the streets of Los Angeles. Visit 24hoursofhappy.com to watch the full interactive video.
