Major Lazer continue their busy release schedule this year by dropping yet another single, smooth vibe “Lay Your Head On Me” featuring vocals from Mumford & Sons’ frontman Marcus Mumford. The unexpected release comes short after the trio’s announcement of their new weekly live mix series titled “A Very Lazer Sunday,” the first of which was broadcasted from Diplo’s home.
“Lay Your Head On Me” is co-written with previous collaborator MØ, who has worked with Major Lazer on their biggest hits “Lean On” and “Cold Water”. With the single, the diverse superstar trio (comprised of Diplo, Walshy Fire and Ape Drums) goes in a different direction in comparison to the dancehall aesthetic that has characterized their latest releases. Starting off with warm, washed-out guitars, “Lay Your Head On Me” features Marcus Mumford’s soothing voice right in the forefront, while as the song unfolds listeners are met with a combination of folk and tropical sounds.
