Last month Major Lazer previewed “Get Free,” a track for which Diplo recruited Dirty Projectors siren Amber Coffman. Well now, it’s out today, and downloadable at majorlazergetfree.com for the price of an email. It’s good! There’s a video, too, featuring Major Lazer’s cartoon dancehall commando sitting on a pile of dinosaur bones and staring off meaningfully into the sunrise, thinking about Amber’s inspirational lyrics and swept up in the track’s wistful melancholy. Coffman’s part is transcribed, so you too can feel Major Lazer’s anti-government yearning for liberation. Use caution when singing along at home, though; in typical fashion, some of these Coffman melodies dip and dive hard enough to break an amateur voicebox.
