Following a preview of Major Lazer‘s (the collaborative outfit made up of DJs Diplo and Switch) first single of 2012 “Get Free”, which appeared in the duo’s European promo tour video (watch here), the pair release the song in its full audio quality, with a typically trippy video to accompany.
The clip centers around Major Lazer’s cartoon action hero character and pastes the song’s lyrics (as sung by Dirty Projectors‘ Amber Coffman) at the forefront of the usual, possibly LCD-laced illustrations. You can download the song for free, with a Bonde Do Role remix thrown in as an extra, by submitting your email address here.
