Calvin Harris took to his social media yesterday to announce his new album, Funk Wav Bounces Vol. 1 (June 30th) and even made a little video posting up the names of the likes of Kehlani, Future, Nicki Minaj, Khalid, John Legend, Snoop Dogg, Big Sean, Lil Yachty, Schoolboy Q and many many more; perhaps making this one of the hottest Calvin Harris projects in a long time.
We have already been treated to two absolute summer smashes in the shape of Slide which featured Frank Ocean and Migos and then Heatstroke which boasted a magical line-up of Ariana Grande, Young Thug and Pharrell.
The Dumfries native has really made a name for himself over the last decade, boasting hits like This Is What You Came For, My Way, How Deep Is Your Love and the beloved Dance Wiv Me. The new album already seems to be taking a more mainstream route with a heavy focus on R&B and Hip-Hop and obviously Funk beats, predominantly stemming from the artists he has been working with.
We’re expecting big beats, summer vibes and a whole lot of singability.
Check out the teaser video with a feature from some Khalid vocals.
