In a recent interview with radioandmusic.com, Diplo announced big news regarding new releases from Major Lazer and Jack U. During his current India tour with Major Lazer, Diplo told the website that the trio was currently mastering their first of two albums scheduled for 2015. Working with partners Jillionaire and Walshy Fire, the first Major Lazer album is set for February 2015 (although Triple J is reporting that it may be in March), with the second album to release in September 2015. Both albums will feature eight tracks each.
When asked about collaborations with Skrillex, Diplo told the publication that their future collaborations (presumably Jack U songs) will also release in the coming year. The website also questioned him about potential collaborations with his rumored girlfriend Katy Perry, to which the producer sneakily replied:
"My priorities have always been making music and you never know what is coming out."
