Major Lazer and Dirty Projectors' Amber Coffman first urged us to "Get Free" a year ago, but Diplo and DP's most elusive howler revived the reggae-inflected daydream for a live performance on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon last night (April 11). Ms. Coffman brought along lead Projector Dave Longstreth to supply some tangled guitar lines, while ?uestlove and the Roots happily filled out the rest of the stage, playing backup to Diplo's hazy synth loop. Major Lazer's long-awaited second album, Free the Universe, drops April 16.
