Hear Major Lazer’s Stoner-Friendly Holiday Song ‘Christmas Trees’
EDM trio Major Lazer wish the world a happily stoned holiday with new song “Christmas Trees,” a collaboration with Jamaican reggae artist Protoje. The mellow track is a highlight from Mad Decent’s fourth installment of its A Very Decent Christmas compilation series, featuring 10 electro-tinged holiday songs.
Major Lazer released chart-topping hit “Cold Water,” featuring Justin Bieber and Danish vocalist MØ, as the first single from their forthcoming LP, Music Is the Weapon. “It was spontaneous, no one thought it would work,” Major Lazer member Diplo told Rolling Stone of the all-star track. The producer also praised MØ’s unconventional musicianship: “I felt like she was so ambiguous, having grown up singing pop and punk … Her word choice and her metaphors are just so foreign from American songwriters who tend to overuse the same phrases.”
Last month, Major Lazer showcased their European tour with a black-and-white, live video for “Cold Water.” The group also recently co-headlined the Austin City Limits Festival and New York’s Global Citizen Festival.
