The Long-Awaited Major Lazer Album Has Finally Gotten a Release Date

Major Lazer has dropped some major news, with the announcement that the group’s fourth album will be released Oct. 23.

Titled Music Is The Weapon, the album is the trio’s first full-length since 2015’s Peace Is the Mission, which contained the Diplo-led trio’s record-setting DJ Snake and MØ collab “Lean On.”

This new album was originally set for release last year and is the group’s first with Ape Drums, who replaced former member Jillionaire in 2019. See the album cover art below.

Music Is the Weapon will contain a slew of previously released tracks, including the recent Nicki Minaj collab “Oh My Gawd,” “Lay Your Head on Me” featuring Marcus Mumford, “Que Calor” featuring J Balvin and El Alfa, “Trigger” with Khalid, and “Can’t Take It From Me” with Skip Marley.

This news follows last week’s release of Chasing the Sound, a documentary that follows the trio through Nigeria and Ghana, and explores the thriving dance music scenes in those West African countries. Major Lazer will also do a seven date U.S. drive-in tour starting on Oct. 23 in Riverside, Calif. Tickets go on sale this Friday, October 2.
