Mad Decent today have informed us that the release date for Major Lazers forthcoming new album Free The Universe has been pushed back due to being ‘kidnapped by General Rubbish and we all must embark on an epic journey to upset his evil plan so Major Lazer can free the universe as planned with the album.’
Major Lazer sends the following message:
‘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.’
It appears that the incessant touring, writing, producing, remixing, award ceremony attending and video documentary making has finally caught up with Diplo and he has bitten off more than he can chew.
Major Lazer carried on to say:
‘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. An iTunes exclusive pre-order in the US will launch next Tuesday, 2/26 which will feature an instant grat download of the forthcoming Major Lazer single “Watch Out for This (Bumaye)”.’
In the mean time, to keep your blues at bay you can download LAZER STRIKES BACK Vol. 1. Major Lazer have said they will be putting out 3 volumes of rare/unreleased music on-line until album release. Major Lazer’s FREE THE UNIVERSE WORLD TOUR starts next week.
