Major Lazer unveil LP guestlist… Shaggy, Bruno Mars, Wyclef all present

Releases

Major Lazer

Officially a two-man collaboration no more, notes on the sophomore LP from dancehall project Major Lazer have just been published on behalf of its “sole executive producer” Diplo (sorry, Switch).┬áSo we now know that the record – the successor to ML’s 2009 debut ‘Guns Don’t Kill People… Lazers Do’ – carries the title ‘Free The Universe’ and will be released on 5 Nov via Diplo’s Mad Decent label imprint.

Oh, and a Major Lazer LP wouldn’t be much of a Major Lazer LP without a ridiculous list of guest stars. Being no exception to that rule, ‘Free The Universe’ features Bruno Mars (!), Wyclef Jean (!!), Shaggy (!!!) and less ridiculous contributors in Vampire Weekend’s Ezra Koenig, Tyga, Flux Pavilion, Wynter Gordon and Dev. Oh, and Dirty Projectors’ Amber Coffman, who appears on previously released single ‘Get Free’, obviously.
