Major Lazer have shared the first single from their forthcoming and final album.
Since Diplo, Jillionaire and Walshy Fire announced in September 2018 that, after just over 10 years years, the project would be coming to a close, they have been pretty tight lipped about their fourth album. Now, after teasing a track back in January, the trio have finally officially shared something official.
‘Can’t Take It From Me’ features guest vocals from Jamaican vocalist – and grandson to Bob – Skip Marley and finds the group channelling the Caribbean musical traditions that have always defined their sound, fusing them with bass and EDM tropes. Check it out below.
Last month, Diplo teased the return of Major Lazer’s beloved FXX animated series.
No release date has been announced for the album yet, so in the meantime you can revisit the trio’s 10th anniversary compilation, which was released last October.
Of course, Diplo hasn’t been resting on his laurels. Toward the end of April, he launched a country project under the name Thomas Wesley.
