RELEASE NEW VIDEO FOR ‘POWERFUL’
(FEAT. ELLIE GOULDING & TARRUS RILEY)
AUTUMN UK LIVE DATES
‘PEACE IS THE MISSION’, OUT NOW ON BECAUSE/MAD DECENT
Following on the massive chart-smashing success of last single, ‘Lean On’ (written with DJ Snake & featuring Danish songstress MØ), global electronic superstars MAJOR LAZER have employed the services of Ellie Goulding and Tarrus Riley for latest single ‘Powerful’, taken from their rapturously received third album ‘Peace is the Mission’ – out now via Mad Decent and Because Music.
Living up to the song’s title, the brand new video for ‘Powerful’, directed by James Slater (Jamie T, Stealing Sheep, White Lies), stars Ellie Goulding and Tarrus Riley and sees Slater taking the title and running with it as the duo shock the customers of a highway café. From floating a waitress across the room, spinning plates off tables and generally wielding their kinetic powers to cause the utmost chaos, the unlikely pair form an electrifying bond that can only be described as “powerful”!
Last single ‘Lean On’, which was an international runaway hit, has now reached platinum status and topped Shazam and Global Spotify charts (290m streams and counting), making it the most successful Major Lazer single to date. The track, which has sat in the UK Official Charts for the past 20 weeks has hit nearly 300m views on YouTube and also reached #1 in the video airplay charts.
After the group’s storming set on the mainstage at Wireless Festival, they will be putting on an equally huge UK headline tour this autumn culminating in an epic London show at Alexandra Palace (with support from Mumdance & Novelist and Elliphant). Major Lazer are continuing to prove that they are everyone’s favourite ‘future dancehall trio’ and that in 2015, peace is indeed the mission.
