Major Lazer Reveal Tracklist, Collaborations for Sophomore Album
Major Lazer’s sophomore album Free The Universe was originally intended for release in November 2012; however, the album was pushed back for 2013. Before that point, producer Diplo and his cohorts, who have dabbled in dance hall, dubstep, house, and a string of other genres, have since announced the tracklist for Free The Universe, along with its lengthy list of collaborations.
As a follow-up to their 2009 debut Guns Don’t Kill People… Lazers Do, Free The Universe features a diverse list of collaborations, from dance hall genre performers to rockers to R&B crooners. Regarding this disparate list, Diplo previously told NME: "Then we have some classic fellas like Lee Perry and Junior Murvin. It's like reggae is the vehicle, but we really live in this Major Lazer post-apocalypse world where all these artists don't seem strange together."
This time around, Diplo’s previous partner Switch is absent. The album, released on February 18, is coming out through the producer’s own Mad Decent. The full list of tracks and collaborations includes:
'You're No Good' [ft. Santigold, Vybz Kartel, Danielle Haim & Yasmin]
'Jet Blue Jet' [ft. Leftside, GTA, Razz & Biggy]
'Get Free' [ft. Amber Coffman of Dirty Projectors]
'Jah No Partial' [ft. Flux Pavilion]
'Wind Up' [ft. Elephant Man & Opal]
'Scare Me' [ft. Peaches & Timberlee]
'Jessica' [ft. Ezra Koenig of Vampire Weekend]
'Bumaye' (Watch Out for This) [ft. Busy Signal & Flexican]
'Keep Cool' [ft. Shaggy & Wynter Gordon]
'Sweat' [ft. Laidback Luke & Ms. Dynamite]
