Major Lazer, a Jamaican dancehall/alternative musical project by DJ/producer Diplo, presents a new track from their forthcoming album, Free the Universe, which is due out on April 15, 2013, via Secretly Canadian. Here are excerpts with a link to the original post and the music clip.
Following past single “Watch Out For This (Bumaye)”, the group [features] Vampire Weekend frontman Ezra Koenig for a spacey trip to Jamaica with “Jessica”. [. . .] It’s a Rastafarian head trip and a prime example of how high Koenig’s vocals can get.
In anticipation of the album’s release, check out the outfit’s Lazers Strike Back Vol 1. mixtape, which is comprised of rare/unreleased music. And stay tuned for two additional mixtapes ahead of Free the Universe’s release. Major Lazer are currently out on tour and will hit South by Southwest [in Austin, Texas] later this week before hitching up with Angel Hazer for even more U.S. dates.
