Major Lazer

In a strange label move – strange, because Diplo has his own label (the ‘Harlem Shake’ releasing Mad Decent) – Major Lazer have signed to Secretly Canadian for the American market.

And to prove it, the ensemble’s principal producer, the aforementioned Diplo, will release his plural-times-postponed new LP ‘Free The Universe’, as features Shaggy, Bruno Mars and Vampire Weekend’s Ezra Koenig, on 15 Apr.

Diplo, SC and co are giving away one of its featured tracks, ‘Watch Out For This (Bumaye)’ as consolation for ‘Free The Universe’ arriving so late, but only if you pay for the LP in advance.

So do that, or just play ‘Bumaye’ via SoundCloud, whilst you browse the dates of Major Lazer’s May-jor tour.
