BASS: Major Lazer ft Amber Coffman & The Roots: Get Free (Live on Jimmy Fallon)

Check it out here.

The mighty Major Lazer finally perform BandsxBass’ tune of 2012 ‘Get Free’ with the help of Dirty Projectors’ Amber Coffman (who sang the original vocals on the tune) and Dave Longstreth. Oh yeah and The Roots (Fallon’s house band).

We’ve been waiting for ages to hear a decent live version of Get Free, especially after only getting a recorded version when we went to see them at Shepherds Bush Empire last year.

Amber’s tingle inducing vocals work as well live as they do on record and Diplo seems to be loving it, even if he doesn’t appear to be doing a huge amount here.

Props all round! Major Lazer’s second album Free The Universe is out next week and it’s safe to say we’re pretty excited about hearing it.
