Album delays happen all the time and it’s something that the modern day music fan has come to accept and learn to cope with. It’s no shock that Major Lazer‘s Free The Universe album has been delayed, but as an apology, there is free music to be downloaded. Major Lazer will be putting out three volumes of freebies, and the first, Lazer Strikes Back Vol. 1, is available to download now.


The upcoming album, “FREE THE UNIVERSE,” has been been kidnapped by General Rubbish and we all must embark on an epic journey to upset his evil plan so we can free the universe as planned with the album.

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. 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 “Watch Out for This (Bumaye).”

In the mean time, please download LAZER STRIKES BACK Vol. 1. here: We will be putting out 3 volumes of music on-line until album release.

1. Major Lazer & Flux Pavilion – Jah No Partial (Jack Beats Remix)
2. Major Lazer – Get Free feat. Amber of Dirty Projectors (Yellow Claw Get Free Money Remix)
3. Major Lazer – Original Don feat. The Partysquad (DGRC Remix)
4. Hot Chip – Look At Where We Are (Major Lazer Extended Remix)

Much Love.
