What’s better than one Major Lazer album? Why, two Major Lazer albums of course!
Australian outlet Inthemix got the scoop from Major Lazer‘s Walshy Fire that the explosive trio already has another LP primed and ready to follow up their highly anticipated forthcoming album “Peace is the Mission“. In an interview with said publication, Fire said that Major Lazer’s next album will be called “Music Is The Weapon” and should be released by the end of 2015.
The only problem is choosing the tracklist. Fire was quoted saying:
“For sure, we’re gonna release another album.”
“We already have a name for it, it’s called “Music is the Weapon”, and it’s gonna come out later this year or early next year for sure… It’ll have a few more club songs, a few more festival songs…but it’ll be in the same spectrum, just super-well-written songs with really great production that the entire world can understand.”
“Music is the Weapon” will be the trio’s fourth album since their 2009 debut album “Guns Don’t Kill People…Lazers Do”. The trio’s collaboration with DJ Snake and MØ, “Lean On” is already set to be one of the year’s top tracks, and with another album’s worth of music on deck for the second half the year, it’s no doubt that 2015 will be the year of the Lazer.
Major Lazer’s third album “Peace is the Mission” which also includes single “Too Original” featuring Elliphant & Jovi Rockwell and collaborations with Ellie Goulding, Ariana Grande and more is slated for a June 1st release. The album can be pre-ordered here.
We leave you today with Major Lazer’s latest track “Too Original”. Enjoy!
