Diplo Talks New Music from Jack U and Major Lazer at the GRAMMYs
Diplo let fans in on all of the music he has in the works during an interview with "swaggy" suit-wearing Tyler Oakley on the GRAMMYs Red Carpet on Sunday. Diplo was in attendance with Madonna, who performed the song he produced, "Living for Love," from her forthcoming album Rebel Heart, set for release on March 6 via Interscope Records.
When asked about his plans over the next year, he revealed there is a Major Lazer album on the way that features a variety of pop stars, including Ariana Grande, Ellie Goulding, Travis Scott, Pusha-T and Gwen Stefani, which will be arriving in April.
He also confirmed that the Jack U album will be arriving this month. This comes shortly after Skrillex told Billboard in their exclusive interview that a 10-song release with Diplo would be released “sooner than later.” During the interview, Skrillex announced that fans can also look forward to variety of new music from his own OWLSA imprint, including a new album from Kill The Noise, and some brand new Jungle Terror music courtesy of Wiwek.
Diplo continues to add to his impressive list of collaborations, which now includes pop icon Madonna. Fans can expect the stacked Major Lazer release to be an indication of the kind of star power the Jack U album has in store. Perhaps that rumored Missy Elliott collaboration will be seeing the light of day soon. Regardless, 2015 is already shaping up to be another year dominated by Diplo. Stay tuned for more information on these releases to come very soon.
