Major Lazer emerges with a new production titled Lean On, the group’s first studio output since appearing on Dillon Francis’ We Make It Bounce back in September.
The new tune features Mad Decent alum DJ Snake and streaking Denmark songstress MØ, who recently announced she’ll be joining this year’s Mad Decent Boat Party. Lean On comes on the heels of Diplo’s December revelation that two new albums from Major Lazer are in the works for 2015. And although there hasn’t been any press information relating this release to the forthcoming albums, Lean On may very well be the first glimpse into what to expect from the troupe’s yet-unnamed long-players.
Surprisingly, Lean On explores uncharted territory for this already eclectic trio, implementing tropical house vibes at a sub-100 BPM tempo. The tune’s shuffling rhythm and melodic vocal track have a Middle Eastern flair–themes that are popular in previous DJ Snake material. However, it’s MØ’s timorous vocals that are the centerpiece of Lean On, delicately floating on top of the track’s bright and airy synthetics. The track is truly a work of variety for the Caribbean-ensconced trio. Pick up Lean On right here on Beatport, and check out the tune’s official lyric video below.
