Diplo recently stopped in Boston and sat down with Vanessa Hale at 103.3 AMP Radio to talk about his upcoming projects, the new Major Lazer album, and what it’s like to work with collaborators such as Chris Brown and Bruno Mars.
Following the worldwide success of “Lean On” and the rest of the Peace Is The Mission album which also featured collaborations with Ellie Goulding and 2Chainz, the natural question is to ask…what’s next for Diplo and the rest of the Major Lazer squad?
“We’ve got a little more gas in Major Lazer, we’ve got another single coming out. We’re reissuing that album, so there’s 5 new tracks. Then we have a new album we’re going to put out next year around August or September and a single around Coachella with The Weeknd, so that’s going to be dope.” –Diplo
Watching Diplo collaborate with pop superstars such as the aforementioned Ellie Goulding or Justin Bieber, it begs the question…how do you keep striking gold? Diplo explains a bit –
“I think right now, that’s the goal for a lot of pop artists, to do a little away from the mainstream.” –Diplo
