Thom Yorke to contribute to Major Lazer remix album

on February 12, 2010, 9:45am

Thom Yorke likes to stay busy. If he isn’t raising boatloads of cash for Haiti, recording a new Radiohead album or lending a hand to Flying Lotus, he’s taking other people’s songs and adding his own unique spin to them. This time around, he’s tackling the undead-killing dancehall soldier Major Lazer.

Major Lazer, who’s the result of a collaboration between DJs/producers Diplo and Switch, released its debut, Guns Don’t Kill People… Lazers Do, last year. Yorke’s remix of the track “Jump Up” is just one of the five tracks on the Lazers Never Die EP. Other tracks include the M.I.A. and Busy Signal collabo entitled “Sound of Siren” (which you can below) plus remixes of “Can’t Stop Now” and “Bruk Out” plus appearances by Ms. Banks, Collie Buddz, and Lindi Ortega. No official release date has been set, but expect it to drop sometime in April.

You can catch the Major on tour with Rusko this March.

Lazers Never Die Tracklist:
01 Sound of Siren [ft. M.I.A. and Busy Signal]
02 Good Enough [ft. Collie Buddz and Lindi Ortega]
