NEW EP CALIFORNIA SET FOR RELEASE THIS AUTUMN
The song is the first to be revealed from a forthcoming EP, California, set for release this autumn. California will be the first solo body of work from Diplo since 2013’s Revolution EP. Jimmy Fallon unveiled the EP’s artwork on The Tonight Show when Diplo, MØ and Goldlink performed Get It Right, also featured on the EP, on the show last week.
The new music follows a remarkable year for Diplo. Major Lazer’s documentary Give Me Future, shot at the groups historic, 400,000-person Havana, Cuba show in March 2016, premiered via Apple Music after debuting to rave reviews at this year’s Sundance Festival. The band also released a companion album to the film entitled Major Lazer Presents: Give Me Future—Music From and Inspired by the Film and an acclaimed EP, Know No Better.
Diplo, born Thomas Wesley Pentz, is one of the most dynamic forces in music today under his own name, as well as a founding member of Major Lazer. As pop’s most in-demand producer, Diplo has worked with artists such as Beyoncé, Justin Bieber, Madonna, Ariana Grande, Bruno Mars, Britney Spears, M.I.A., Lil Yachty, MØ and many more.
Diplo has continued to tour the world over, with stops in Pakistan, Brazil, Nepal, Bangladesh, Kenya, Nigeria, Uganda, Croatia, China, Mexico, Italy, Korea, Spain, Sweden, Denmark, Switzerland, Austria, Germany, Hungary and beyond.
