A collaboration that no one saw coming, Major Lazer released a new song, “Lay Your Head On Me” featuring Marcus Mumford, the frontman of the Grammy-winning band Mumford & Sons—Mumford’s debut as a featured artist.
In the midst of a tumultuous time in the world, the new single is heartwarming and reassuring with the comforting lyrics, “Lay your head on me, don’t be afraid love. I said it’s okay, it’s alright.”
The combination of Mumford’s signature raspy vocals and Major Lazer’s genius, innovative beats mix perfectly to deliver a cross-genre masterpiece.
Major Lazer is a Jamaican-American electronic dance trio consisting of DJs Walshy Fire and Ape Drums, and acclaimed record producer Diplo who’s worked with the likes of Beyoncé, Madonna, M.I.A. and many more global superstars. The group’s funky name pays tribute to a one-armed, Jamaican Zombie War commando embodying the band’s beautiful mission to free the universe with music.
From his project collaboration with country artist Thomas Wesley, Diplo released three new songs—Platinum-certified “Heartless” featuring Morgan Wallen, “So Long” featuring Cam, and “Lonely” with the Jonas Brothers.
Major Lazer has released three commercially successful albums—Guns Don’t Kill People…Lazers Do (2009), Free The Universe (2013), and Peace Is The Mission (2015), featuring “Lean On” with DJ Snake and MØ, one of the most successful songs of all time with 13.1 million global sales. Recently, the trio
Mumford also just released a new single, a rendition of Gerry and The Pacemakers’ “You’ll Never Walk Alone.”
From “Lean On” to “Lay Your Head On Me,” Major Lazer never disappoints and reminds us at the ideal time that “someday we will be fine.” Sit back, clear out some space in your living room, and dance the day away to another great Major Lazer track.
