Following the launch of their own animated series on FXX, Major Lazer are preparing to truly take over every media platform in the name of peace and party beats with the release of their third studio album, Peace is the Mission’, through Warner Music on June 1. We’ve already heard the certified killer single ‘Lean On’ featuring MØ and DJ Snake (refresh your memory in the gallery above), and with names like Ellie Goulding, Travi$ Scott, Pusha T, Elliphant, and more on the roster, the full album looks set to explode when the release date rolls round in the US. Looks like peace isn’t the only mission for Diplo, DJ Jillionaire, and Walshy Fire either – this is just the first of a series of albums set to drop from the dancehall inspired squad over the next year. Looks like it’s Lazer season.
While you’re waiting for more news on the upcoming releases, check out our recent interview with Walshy Fire on Lazer’s origins, Peace is the Mission, and the best freestyle rapper he ever saw in his life.
The full album is available to preorder now on iTunes and you can peep more info on Major Lazer’s site. Keep it locked on ACCLAIM to hear when the group’s subsequent albums drop throughout the year.
