“I want everybody to lock in a date right now in their brains,” he told the crowd at the Coney Island Boardwalk Ford Amphitheater. “August 5th. ‘Birds In The Trap’ coming soon!”
He also debuted a new song before the big announcement.
“Some songs originally intended for the ML album have already been snagged and used by Beyonce for Lemonade, and The Weeknd for his next project. Diplo teased that Nicki Minaj may nab a few for her future projects, but for the Lazer release itself, Diplo can promise vocal appearances from Usher, MØ, Sam Hunt, Travis Scott, Sia, as well as possibly Tove Lo and Tinashe.”
You can hear Scott’s feature on the Major Lazer album when it drops in January 2017.
