On June 1st, Major Lazer will release the first of two new albums this year, Peace is the Mission, through Mad Decent. The follow-up to 2013’s Free The Universe is previewed today with a star-studded collaboration called “Night Riders”.
A swaggering jam fit for Friday night debauchery, it features slick bars from Pusha T, 2 Chainz, and Travi$ Scott, as well as vocals from Mad Decent reggae musician Mad Cobra. Together, the revelers promise to turn up Major Lazer style, singing, “Tonight we’re gonna set the streets on fire.” Listen in below.
Other special guests featured on Peace is the Mission include Ellie Goulding, Ariana Grande, MØ, DJ Snake, and Wild Belle, among others. For more of the LP, check out “Roll the Bass”.
