It looks like Major Lazer’s highly anticipated second album, FREE THE UNIVERSE won’t be coming out this month, like we all hoped. Diplo issued the following statement:

Our fans are the most important part of what makes Major Lazer what it is. It is with that consideration that “FREE THE UNIVERSE” will not be released this month as previously scheduled. We never want to disappoint our supporters but circumstances out of our control have made us unable to keep the intended date. For anyone disappointed, we are truly apologetic and we promise that this hiccup has only made what we have planned for the album stronger. We tried extremely hard to keep the date but it was ultimately decided that rushing the album would have been unfair to you and everyone who worked so hard on it.

In lieu of a new album, Lazer decided to take out a free, four track collection of rare/unreleased remixes of FREE THE UNIVERSE tracks “Get Free,” “Original Don” and “Jah No Partial,” as well as an extended version of Major Lazer’s remix of Hot Chip’s “Look At Where We Are.” If you’re interested in a consolation prize, download it here.

Lazer Strikes Back Vol. 1:
01 Major Lazer & Flux Pavilion: “Jah No Partial” (Jack Beats Remix)
02 Major Lazer: “Get Free” [feat. Amber of Dirty Projectors] (Yellow Claw Get Free Money Remix)
03 Major Lazer: “Original Don” [feat. The Partysquad] (DGRC Remix)
04 Hot Chip: “Look At Where We Are” (Major Lazer Extended Remix)

Reviews

Kelis’ sixth and finest LP is not the gastronomic concept album suggested by its title. Food is instead a feast of sweaty funk grooves and impeccable soul melodies, consistently satisfying and often fabulous.
