Starting life as a worldwide online hit for Major Lazer in 2012, amassing 50+ million views, the first single from the album "Get Free" showcases an evolution in sound for Newton and continues his affinity with covers; having previously released a critically acclaimed version of Massive Attack’s "Teardrop" on his debut album.
Here's the video for his new single "Get Free":
The video is a powerful opening statement, depicting Newton shedding his trademark dreadlocks, opening up a new chapter and setting the standard for what’s to come for the new album.
