Major Lazer Lazer Strikes Back Vol. 1

Many of you already know that the highly anticipated sophomore album by Major Lazer titled “Free The Universe” was not released as expected this past Tuesday. We’ve been waiting on word from someone in the Major Lazer/Mad Decent camp about why this was the case and today we received an email explaining the whole situation:

Our fans are the most important part of what makes Major Lazer what it is.  It is with that consideration that “FREE THE UNIVERSE” will not be released this month as previously scheduled.  We never want to disappoint our supporters but circumstances out of our control have made us unable to keep the intended date.  For anyone disappointedwe are truly apologetic and we promise that this hiccup has only made what we have planned for the album stronger.  We tried extremely hard to keep the date but it was ultimately decided that rushing the album would have been unfair to you and everyone who worked so hard on it.  An iTunes exclusive pre-order in the US will launch next Tuesday, 2/26 which will feature an instant grat download of the forthcoming Major Lazer single “Watch Out for This (Bumaye).”In the mean time, please download LAZER STRIKES BACK Vol. 1. We will be putting out 3 volumes of rare/unreleased music on-line until album release

The first volume contains a remix to “Jah No Partial” from UK duo Jack Beats, a Yellow Claw remix of “Get Free,” and a few other gems that will surely start your weekend off on the right foot. Also, The Free The Universe Tour kicks off next week as well so check out the dates and grab tickets! Enjoy mes Amis
