Major Lazer may be going the way of the dinosaurs, but Diplo's latest supergroup looks to be more than a one-time endeavor. The Mad Decent label head has shared a sample clip of "Mountains," his fourth collaboration with Labrinth and Sia as part of their LSD project.
"Mountains" sees Diplo (real name Thomas Wesley Pentz Jr.) defend his reputation as an EDM/pop crossover hitmaker. Vocals by Labrinth and Sia are accompanied by a rubbery sawtooth before the chorus gives way to a invigorating drop.
Labrinth (real name Timothy Lee McKenzie) may have began his music career as a producer, but in 2010 he signed to Simon Cowell's label, Syco Music. Sia (full name Sia Kate Isobelle Furler) likely needs no introduction. In addition to her prolific career in pop music, her contributions to "Titanium" by David Guetta made her a household name in the EDM world.
The three artists debuted as LSD back in May of 2018 with the release of "Genius." In the months since, they followed up the single with songs titled "Audio" and "Thunderclouds."
