Major Lazer reveals an upcoming collaboration with The Weeknd
One-third of electronic music group, Major Lazer, recently had an interview with 103.3 AMP Radio’s Vanessa Hale and brought up some big news regarding his future productions. Diplo, who clearly has been on a roll this past year, told Hale that Major Lazer has an upcoming single with singer and songwriter, The Weeknd. After a successful 2015 campaign, consisting of chart-topping tracks from their album ‘Peace is the Mission’, it is definitely intriguing to hear what Major Lazer has in stored with their new collaboration alongside the Canadian platinum-recording artist.
Diplo revealed his plans in the interview by saying:
“We’ve got a little more gas in Major Lazer, we’ve got another single coming out. We’re reissuing that album, so there’s five new tracks. Then we have a new album we’re going to put out next year around August or September and a single around Coachella with The Weeknd, so that’s going to be dope.”
Along with this new song with The Weeknd, the trio is also planning to release another album. Another member of Major Lazer, Walshy Fire, once revealed that the title of the follow-up album to ‘Peace is the Mission’ will be ‘Music is the Weapon’. Having such masterfully produced tracks for their album from last summer, we simply look forward to next year and see the firepower Major Lazer will bring to us with this upcoming album. In addition, Coachella is only a few months away and those who will be attending will be the lucky ones to first hear Major Lazer and The Weeknd’s future single and possibly some brand new tracks from ‘Music is the Weapon’.
