Major Lazer Free The Universe Details
A few months ago, Major Lazer, the dancehall project from Diplo and Switch, released “Get Free,” the surprisingly restrained and pretty collaboration with Dirty Projectors’ Amber Coffman. And we’ve been hearing bits and pieces about a new Major Lazer album for a long time now. Today, the group finally got around to announcing the details: Free The Universe, Major Lazer album #2, arrives in November, and its list of guests is crazy.
Here are some of the people who will help out on Free The Universe: Vampire Weekend frontman Ezra Koenig, Bruno Mars, Wyclef, Shaggy, Tyga, Flux Pavilion, Dev, Wynter Gordon.
It’s also worth noting that while Switch will help out some of the time, Major Lazer is now just Diplo and whoever he’s working with at the moment. For instance, Ariel Rechtshaid and Dre Skull helped Diplo on “La La La,” Snoop Dogg’s new Major Lazer-produced single. Some incarnation of Major Lazer also helps out on No Doubt’s forthcoming album.
