It feels like it’s been a while since we heard anything about Music Is The Weapon, the planned follow up to Major Lazer‘s 2015 hit album Peace Is The Mission. Thankfully, Diplo is finally breaking his silence on the topic. Speaking with Billboard at the AMAs, the producer offered up some new details about the future of his dancehall trio and fans will be excited by what he has to say.
Major Lazer’s next album will finally be arriving in the first month of 2017, with the group’s collaboration with Nicki Minaj and Partynextdoor slated to be released on January 6th ahead of the LP. In addition to that single, the trio have another forthcoming collaboration scheduled for release around the same time, though no details have been revealed at this point.
If that weren’t enough to get you pumped, Major Lazer will also be teaming up with Protoge on a holiday themed record titled “Merry Christmas Tree,” which is due out sometime before Christmas. Lastly, Diplo broke the news on a new single with Bad Royale, which was previewed on Beats 1 following the announcement.
With a new record arriving early next year and plenty of upcoming singles planned to keep us busy until then, the future is certainly looking bright for Major Lazer fans.
