He’s Back! Calvin Harris Is Releasing New Music This Week
It looks like Calvin Harris is releasing new music this week, on Thursday (February 8) to be exact. The Scottish hitmaker shared video of a mysterious projection being shown in Times Square NYC, which shows a rotating skull as well as the release date. Just don’t expect the song to sound anything like Funk Wav Bounces Vol. 1. “In 2018 movin on from Funk Wav sound thank u for joining me on my musical journey haha,” he tweeted earlier this year. If the preview is any indication, expect something edgier than usual.
Of course, Calvin moved away from his trademark electro-house sound on his 2017 LP. Instead, he fused together dance, soul and hip-hop to forge a whole new club sub-genre. And while it was critically acclaimed (the Scot was nominated for Producer of the Year at the Grammys), it didn’t perform as well on the charts as previous offerings. However, “Slide” turned out to be a sleeper hit on the Billboard Hot 100, while “Feels” was a big song internationally. Check out the 34-year-old’s updates below.
