“Know No Better”—streamed more than 100 million times to date—is the title track from the band’s new EP surprise-released last month, two years to the day after their groundbreaking LP Peace is the Mission. The EP expands upon the group’s global sound, taking inspiration from their travels to Pakistan, Cuba, South America, Africa and more while paying homage to their Caribbean roots.
Know No Better finds the trio collaborating with artists from the world over who share their mission of “making the world smaller by making the party bigger,” with appearances from Machel Montano, Busy Signal, Sean Paul, Konshens, J Balvin, Nasty C, Ice Prince, Patoranking, Jidenna, Anitta, Pabllo Vittar and more, as well as production work from the likes of Jr. Blender, Boaz van de Beatz, King Henry and Maphorisa.
The new EP follows the worldwide, record-shattering success of “Run Up” featuring PARTYNEXTDOOR and Nicki Minaj, “Cold Water” featuring Justin Bieber and MØ and “Lean On” with DJ Snake featuring MØ, one of the most successful songs of all time.
Furthermore, Major Lazer’s documentary Give Me Future, filmed at their historic, 400,000 person 2016 show in Havana, Cuba, premiered earlier this year at Sundance to rave reviews and is set for release this fall.
