Major Lazer returned this year with some personnel changes (Switch and Skerrit Bwoy out; Jillionaire in), production on the new album from Snoop Do—er, Lion, a new reggae-tinged single, “Get Free,” released back in April and a second full-length album on the way.
Ed Banger art director So Me (“We Are Your Friends,” “Barbra Streisand”), directed the video for “Get Free,” released today. Diplo and Dirty Projectors’ Amber Coffman, who also sings on the track, make appearances in the clip, a mix of studio footage, boxing, school kids, some brilliant and frenetic dancing and at some point, a guy with an extremely intense gaze petting a chicken. Basically, it’s a nightclub description from Stefon come to life.
Free the Universe drops November 6th via Mad Decent/Downtown and features appearances from Tyga, Wyclef Jean, Bruno Mars and more. In the meantime, check out the video below.
