Major Lazer and Ezra Koenig have teamed up on new track "Vegan Vampire", which features spoken word verses from the Vampire Weekend frontman.

Only today was I listening to that Major Lazer and Amber from Dirty Projectors  track "Get Free" and thinking 'Damn that was a fine track', when a new collaboration from Diplo's alter ego popped up online.

This track will feature in Major Lazer's cartoon series set to air on Fox next year and sees Koenig sing from the point of view of a vegetarian would-be blood sucker, saying: "I would never bite you, I would never bite anybody. I may be a vampire, but I'm also a vegan."

The cartoon, which will also be called Major Lazer, failed to make it onto Adult Swim but has found a home at Fox, with Cat Power and RiFF RAFF also set to contribute to its soundtrack.

Koenig has worked with Diplo before, appearing on the track "Jessica" on the album  "Free The Universe".

 Major Lazer has also collaborated with Bruno Mars, Peaches, Haim, Wyclef Jean, Shaggy, Sean Paul, Pharrell Williams and mny more.
