Over the summer, Diplo began introducing new tracks on Turntable.fm from Major Lazer, his side project with Switch. And moments ago, BBC Radio 1’s Zane Lowe premiered what is apparently the final version of one of those tracks, “Original Don.” The expectedly hype, synth-heavy banger serves as the lead single from Major Lazer’s upcoming new album.
Diplo revealed that the record was in the works yesterday on his mix for Triple J Radio, so it looks like details surrounding the project are coming quickly. And please god let that be the actual artwork for the “Original Don” single because it is the best fucking thing ever. Stream “Original Don” below and check out two more previously unreleased tracks at 107.7 The End.
