Major Lazer and Marcus Mumford Collaborate on New Song “Lay Your Head on Me”: Stream

Electronic music outfit Major Lazer and folk singer Marcus Mumford of Mumford and Sons have come together for a joint single. Titled “Lay Your Head on Me”, it was also co-written by frequent Diplo collaborator and CoSigned Danish pop star .

While Major Lazer and Mumford come from different corners of the music world, their talents here mesh surprisingly well. The Diplo-led trio offer a slightly more tamed production than usual — perhaps their version of a ballad? — which sets the scene for Mumford’s soft coos.

“When you’re numb to the touch/ You cannot chase this ghost away/ And this too shall pass, this too shall pass,” Mumford sings on the track, his lyrics coincidentally very apt given these very uncertain times. Hear it for yourself below.

Though a left-field move for both artists, it’s not entirely unexpected, as Diplo actually recently launched a country music project under his own birth name. As for Major Lazer proper, their last studio album was Peace is the Mission from 2015.

For Mumford, this marks his first-ever solo feature of this kind. He and the rest of the Sons put out a single last fall called “Leading the Blind”, and you’ll be able to catch them live this summer by purchasing concert tickets here.
