Major Lazer debuts the Lost Frequencies remix of their latest single “Lay Your Head On Me” featuring Marcus Mumford today—listen here. With its themes of mental health and support, the original track has resonated with fans worldwide and now multi-platinum Belgian DJ Lost Frequencies’ remix brings the song to the dancefloor with the addition of electrifying synths and a cathartic build, providing listeners with a spellbinding escape from the moment.
‘Lay Your Head On Me’, Mumford’s first ever collaboration of its kind, was co-written with MØ and premiered as Annie Mac’s Hottest Record in the World on BBC Radio 1 before also earning Greg James’ Tune Of The Week and MistaJam’s Dance Anthems.
Marcus Mumford is the frontman of the Grammy-award winning band Mumford & Sons. Stepping out as a featured artist for the first time with this track, Mumford also just released a new charity single—a solo cover of “You’ll Never Walk Alone” originally made famous Gerry and The Pacemakers in the 1960s. After striking up a friendship with Diplo, the two began experimenting in the studio together and an early demo of “Lay Your Head On Me” was born.
“Lay Your Head On Me” follows “Que Calor” featuring J Balvin and El Alfa, which was performed by Balvin at the Super Bowl alongside Jennifer Lopez and is still climbing charts worldwide with more than 400 million streams to date.
Major Lazer is the global dance trio of Diplo, Walshy Fire and Ape Drums named for the group’s fictional figurehead, a one-armed, Jamaican zombie war commando embodying the band’s mission to free the universe with music. Major Lazer have released three acclaimed albums, 2009’s Guns Don’t Kill People…Lazers Do, 2013’s Free The Universe and 2015’s Peace Is The Mission, featuring “Lean On” with DJ Snake and MØ, one of the most successful songs of all time. Their long-anticipated fourth album is due later this year.
