Titled 'Soca Storm', it takes in three brand new songs from the trio, 'Wet It Up', 'King of the Party', and the title track. The latter two feature soca singer Mr. Killa, while 'Wet It Up' takes in guest vocals from another soca artist, Zeek.
The tracks have featured in recent Major Lazer sets and the release of 'Soca Storm' marks the first time they've been made available for streaming.
The release of the EP comes ahead of a final album from the trio which is due later this year before they disband at the end of 2020.
