On the heels of Major Lazer’s fiery new single “Cold Water” featuring Justin Bieber and MØ, Diplo has shared news regarding the group’s follow-up to 2015’s Peace Is The Mission.
In a recent interview with Beats 1’s Zane Lowe, he confirmed the upcoming album will feature vocal appearances from Sia, Usher, and Travis Scott as well as Sam Hunt. He also named Tinashe and Tove Lo as possible contributors.
“Definitely we have Usher on it, MØ’s back on songs, we have a song with Sam Hunt which is very unusual but I love him. Travi$ Scott…Sia is on a couple ideas but one of the records might be her record. She’s definitely background vocals on a song for sure.”
Diplo stated he’s aiming for another single in August to build to the success of “Cold Water,” a third by the end of the year and the album release in January. “Cold Water” has already charted as the #1 streamed song on Spotify only four days after it was released.
