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.
Diplo has dropped the first track from his new country music project, Thomas Wesley.
The first taste of the multi-faceted producer's latest moniker comes in the form of 'So Long', which features Sony-signed vocalist and Grammy-nominee Cam, whose early songwriting credits include pop stars Miley Cyrus and Sam Smith, with her own output claiming platinum status in the US.
Labrinth, Sia and Diplo have released their first album together as LSD.
Titled Labrinth, Sia & Diplo Present... LSD, the album is out today and features past singles 'Genius', 'Thunderclouds', 'Audio' and 'No New Friends', which the trio have shared over the last six months or so.
Diplo has hinted at the return of the beloved 'Major Lazer' animated series.
The FXX show, which premiered in 2015, took inspiration from the trio's trippy stage visuals and translated it into the world of cartoons, following a freedom fighter in a futuristic Jamaica as he fought demons and smoked a metric ton of weed. It featured a pretty stellar cast, from John Boyega and J.K. Simmons to Vampire Weekend frontman Ezra Koenig. It was well regarded, by fans and critics, before its premature cancellation after only 11 episodes. And now, apparently, it could well be on its way back.
There will be an “enormous” Victorian pier at Glastonbury this year, according to founder Michael Eavis.
Speaking at the launch of 'Stories From The Wasteland', an new exhibition by Joe Rush, the London artist whose work has been a cornerstone of the festival since the 1980s, Eavis outlined plans for a Glastonbury-on-Sea.
Glastonbury has dropped the first part of its lineup for 2019, with The Chemical Brothers, Stormzy, Hot Chip and Jon Hopkins featuring amongst the big names.
Also confirmed today are Diplo, The Streets, Little Simz, Kamasi Washington, Friendly Fires and Maribou State, amongst others. The festival will be headlined by The Cure, The Killers and Stormzy, while Janet Jackson and Kylie Minogue will also make headline appearance.
LSD, the trio comprised of Diplo, Labrinth and Sia, have dropped a new track called 'No New Friends'.
The track features the kind of catchy hooks that you'll have come to expect from the power trio, and comes ahead of the release of their debut album together, which is set for release on April 12th via Columbia Records. Diplo announced the album earlier this week via a post on Instagram.
Basketball legend Shaquille O’Neal, as known as Shaq and more recently DJ Diesel, has revealed, in an interview with Page Six, that he has been in the studio with Diplo.
He told the site: “I really look up to Diplo and Skrillex. I’m working on some music with Diplo at the moment and would love to get in the studio with him and Skrillex soon.”
Diplo has announced the release of LSD's (Labrinth, Sia, and Diplo) debut album.
Diplo is set to start in the new Pokémon movie, which also features Ryan Reynolds, Ken Watanabe, Kathryn Newton and Justice Smith.
News hit this week as the latest trailer for the live-action film, 'POKÉMON: Detective Pikachu', appeared online, and the producer gave comment via Twitter.
"Playing myself in the Pokémon detective movie is the first time my kids have ever thought i’m cool," Diplo, who announced a new EP last month, said on the social network.
