Major Lazer, DJ Snake and MØ Head to India In "Lean On"

by Abby Schreiber

It's been a banner day for new music videos: Charli XCX enlisted Eric Wareheim to create a surrealist world filled with '90s-obssed teens and streetwear-clad retirees, FKA twigs "gave birth to dance," Florence Welch created her own "Divine Comedy" and Shamir morphed into a puppet. But the most visually stunning video from the last 24 hours is probably "Lean On" by Major Lazer and DJ Snake featuring MØ. In the clip, the trio travel to India where they dance (and soak in a bath) amidst gorgeous temples and dusty streets and we even get to see Diplo shirtless. Speaking about the video, the producer says, "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 track will appear on the group's forthcoming album, Peace Is the Mission, out June 1st via Mad Decent, and will supposedly be "the first of several Major Lazer albums over the next year," according to a press release. Give the clip a watch, above.
