Five years after the release of their third studio LP, Major Lazer have returned with Music Is The Weapon, their latest and perhaps final album, according to Diplo circa 2018.
In 2015, prior to the release of Peace Is The Mission, the group had already revealed their next effort would be titled Music Is The Weapon. While the title may not have changed, the timeline certainly did. At the time of the announcement, the group had originally aimed to release it within the year.
Things were shaken up further after longtime Major Lazer member Jillionaire departed the group in 2019, when Ape Drums stepped in to fill the spot. We can only speculate how those changes impacted the group's final vision for their latest effort, but Music Is The Weapon stays true to Major Lazer's core creative competency, "making the world smaller by making the party bigger."
