Diplo Talks About Major Lazer's Sound & The Possibility Of An Album

Posted at February 6th, 2017 | by Yash Vikram Singh | in

Diplo is game for releasing his new album w/ Major Lazer but the hold up seems to be a diplomatic one. Diplo is tied up between a new album and releasing a bunch of singles instead as they tread further than an album, as unorthodox as that sounds it is the reality of our time.

“I’ve been listening to a lot of African and Afrobeat music and I work with a lot of writers from there, like Wizkid. We’re trying new styles. We did a dancehall sound on every album and pushed [that genre] forward a little bit and then in the last year, everybody’s done dancehall. It’s time for us to do something different.”

Although he has a whole album locked and loaded, waiting for release he’s still considering whether an album is the right way to go..

“Yeah, we have enough songs [for an album] but I don’t think people digest our music like that. The last record went gold but it took a year and a half to do that. It was crazy. [Laughs] It’s the singles that keep us rising and get more people coming out to our parties. But if we put out four songs that go Top 5, then I’ll put the album out.”

Music Is The Weapon will be just as innovative as anything the trio has ever done, let’s see how it pans out. Whether we will get a fresh new album or a string of singles through out the year.
