Calvin Harris and Katy Perry's breezy 'Feels' gets a suitably elaborate video.

Sam Smith got in a little hot water over the weekend due to a perceived Michael Jackson diss, but the Brit will be looking to change the narrative with the announcement of an exciting new collaboration. The 26-year-old is lending his golden pipes to Calvin Harris’ new single, “Promises.” The Scottish DJ revealed the cover art on social media earlier today as well as the August 17 release date. It follows the Dua Lipa-assisted “One Kiss,” which topped the charts in the UK (and most of Europe).

This is a welcome detour for Sam. He showed his dance chops (and landed his first hit) with a feature on Disclosure’s “Latch” and then followed it up with the even bigger Naughty Boy collaboration ,”La La La.” The last time we heard the “Pray” hitmaker venture into club territory was in 2015 when he reunited with Disclosure on “Omen.” After crying along to The Thrill Of It All, it will be nice to hear him on an another banger. See the cover below.
