Diplo, by himself and with Major Lazer, has collaborated with every artist going. Just everyone. And in an interview with Boston's 103.3 AMP Radio (via Billboard), the producer-DJ revealed that he's got another big team-up en route, this one with the Weeknd.

“We’ve got a little more gas in Major Lazer,” Diplo said. He teased a new single and a reissue of June's Peace Is the Mission album, which featured Ariana Grande2 Chainz, Travi$ Scott, Ellie Goulding and more. "Then we have a new album we’re going to put out next year around August or September and a single around Coachella with the Weeknd, so that’s going to be dope."

Wait, wait: Coachella? April 2016? Five months from now? Guess we'll have to find something to do till then...

Diplo and the Weeknd previously appeared together on a remix of Sia's "Elastic Heart" on the soundtrack to The Hunger Games: Catching Fire.
