Diplo's dub/electronic outfit, Major Lazer, returns this year with their sophomore album, Free the Universe. As expect, it boasts a huge guest lineup that crosses genre lines. There are choice indie rock vocalists (Ezra Koenig and Amber Coffman), reggae stalwarts (Elephant Man and Shaggy), and everyone in between (Tyga, Santigold, and Peaches). It's safe to assume that it'll be nothing short of intriguing to hear how Diplo and company handle the varied (and versatile) cast.
