Kicking off the warmer months, Major Lazer unleashed Top 10 single ‘Lean On’, a collaboration with ‘Turn Down For What’ producer DJ Snake and Denmark’s MØ, and amassed 21million plays on Soundcloud, over 65million streams on Spotify and over 20million views for the music video, making it Major Lazer's most streamed song to date. The trio have now announced a UK headline tour with dates across the country culminating in a London show at Alexandra Palace this October.
PITM features guest contributions from Ellie Goulding, Elliphant, Wild Belle, MØ, Pusha T, 2 Chainz, Travi$ Scott, Jovi Rockwell, DJ Snake, Tarrus Riley, Mad Cobra, Nyla, Chronixx and a re-work of the ‘Hunger Games: Mocking Jay Pt 1’ motion picture soundtrack song ‘All My Love’ featuring Ariana Grande from Trinidadian star Michel Montano. What's more, the face of the project, renegade commando cartoon character Major Lazer, has just received a life of his very own as FX Networks debuted the Major Lazer cartoon on 16 April as part of Animation Domination programming on FXX (It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia, The League, The Simpsons, etc)
With guest appearances from Aziz Ansari, Andy Samberg, Tiësto, RiFF RAFF, Charli XCX, Ezra Koenig, Trinidad James and more, Major Lazer confirms that this will be one of the silliest and best sound-tracked years yet. After airing weekly on FXX, each episode will go up the next day for stream on Hulu and purchase on iTunes. Check www.fxnetworks.com for more info.
