Major Lazer have officially released their new single 'Cold Water', featuring Justin Bieber and Danish artist MØ.
The track, which leaked earlier this week via a Chinese radio station, is the lead single from the group's new album, slated for release in January 2017.
Skrillex and Diplo's debut album under joint alias Jack Ü has been certified gold by the RIAA after selling over 568,000 copies.
Released in February 2015, 'Skrillex & Diplo Present Jack Ü' also landed a double-whammy at the Grammys, winning the awards for Best Dance Album and Best Dance Recording (for hit single 'Where Are Ü Now' featuring Justin Bieber).

Skrillex and M.I.A. have dropped a preview of their collaboration, ‘Go Off’, which is taken from M.I.A.’s forthcoming album, ‘Matadatah’. You can listen to it at the bottom of the page.
M.I.A. revealed that she was working with Skrillex on her latest album via Instagram in November last year, you can see the post below. The record still has no set release date.
Diplo has revealed his disdain for DJ culture in a new interview, saying it’s “corny” and that he’s “sad” to be a part of it.
In the interview with Billboard, the Major Lazer producer, real name Wesley Pentz, didn’t hold back when quizzed on the state of dance music. He said, “The DJ world is the corniest fucking group of people. We're not famous for any good reason. We're just really lame.
After Deadmau5 took aim at Skrillex last October for “supporting bullshit” by working with Justin Bieber, the Jack Ü producer didn’t hold back when he tweeted that Mau5 was “shrivelling in his own pile of hateful shit” shortly after.
Now Skrillex has gone even further in an interview with Rolling Stone magazine, outlining why he worked with Bieber on his 2015 album ‘Purpose’, whilst also offering his thoughts on the future of EDM as a whole.
Skrillex and Diplo's backstage rider has been leaked.
The pair, who perform and tour together as EDM supergroup Jack Ü, request everything from white H&M socks to seven-year-aged Havana Club on their rider, plus enough food and drink to sustain a small village.

Skrillex and Diplo decided to choose the halfway point of their livestreamed Jack Ü 24-hour marathon set to drop a bomb this Friday. A surprise album.
What do you get when you lock Skrillex and Diplo in a studio together? A wildly successful bass child, apparently. Unless you’ve been sleeping under a rock — with a very good set of earplugs — you’ve probably heard at least one of their productions as the duo Jack Ü, whether you wanted to or not.
Their debut ten-track LP, 'Skrillex & Diplo Present Jack Ü', was a co-release between their respective OWSLA and Mad Decent labels that smashed the streams earlier this year, peaking at the #1 spot on Billboard’s US Dance/Electronic Albums chart.
Jack Ü’s second single release off the album, a hit collab with boy wonder Justin Bieber titled ‘Where Are Ü Now’, propelled them into the iPods of pre-teens and parents alike... and, predictably, launched a fair amount of fury within the electronic dance music world.
Catchy though the song may be, making nice with one of the most loathed visitors to the island of Ibiza in the past decade — after the Kardashians, obviously — is bad enough, but making music with him is a slippery slope to navigate. Unless you’re Skrillex or Diplo, of course.
Then, you can chalk it up to Jack Ü and tell the haters to jack off after your track goes platinum in the US. Which it did. It also gave both Diplo and Skrillex their first top 10 hit on the Billboard Hot 100… and the Biebs his seventh.
