Listen: Major Lazer Recruit Ezra Koenig For New Track ‘Jessica’

‘Jessica’ will be on their forthcoming album ‘Free The Universe’

So, Major Lazer might have pushed back the release date for their forthcoming album ‘Free The Universe’, but if it’s any consolation we’re now able to hear a brand new track from the album called ‘Jessica’.

Premiered on Annie Mac’s Radio 1 show at the weekend, the track sees Diplo collaborating with Vampire Weekend frontman Ezra Koenig and going back to some extremely old-school reggae roots. The production is crackly, raw and so vintage that it sounds as if the whole thing has been played through a battered transmitter radio, and when coupled with Koenig’s distinctive voice, the result is something that will probably take a lot of fans by surprise.

Check out ‘Jessica’ below. ‘Free The Universe’ is out April 15th via Mad Decent, Secretly Canadian and Downtown.
