Taking a break from performing at rave cruises and EDM festivals, electronic music tycoons Major Lazer and DJ Snake head eastbound to the Indian countryside in their new video for "Lean On." With Danish singer MØ steering the vocals, the group unleash some Bollywood-inspired choreography while trailing around an ornate temple accompanied by a traditional Indian dance troupe. Here's what Diplo had to say about the experience:
India is special and its beauty absolutely humbled me. When we toured there as Major Lazer, it was mind blowing to see our fan-base and we wanted to incorporate the attitude and positive vibes into our video and just do something that embodies the essence of Major Lazer. Major Lazer has always been a culture mashup and to us, India feels like some kind of special creature with one foot in history and one firmly in the future. The experience is something we’ll never forget.
Check out the video above and stay tuned for Major Lazer's third studio album, Peace Is The Mission, to be released in June.
